Space is dark and it’s so endless


Gravity (Alfonso Cuaron, 2013). This two-person space drama is vast, intimate, gripping and terrifying. And that was only in 2D. Planet Earth is blue, gold and black. The production design and effects execution is magnificent and the suspense is such that you hold your breath. You already knew that George Clooney is the man you want around in a crisis, even if you get Toy Story flashbacks (it also has two Barbarella moments and a compressed theory of evolution).
