Director Alfonso Cuarón is a well-accomplished filmmaker who has made a number of great films – from the best Harry Potter movie to Children of Men and A Little Princess. However, in the case of Gravity, he’s made his masterpiece. It begins with a breathtaking shot in which the camera slowly looms towards both the characters and the other objects that are floating around in space, and that basically sets out the feel of the movie, almost as if the film’s saying “Think you’ve seen it all, well think again!” Alfonso Cuarón has made a cinematic landmark that features mind-blowing effects, characters you can relate to, and a career best performance from Sandra Bullock. The film of the year.
