    A gripping film. One that touched my heart. I will never forget it. Worth watching. But maybe try having a box of tissues beside you.

    Masterfully shot film. The acting from the whole cast was filled with raw emotion, but what's much more important and notable than that is the world that Cuaron creates. It is a convincing depiction of the very worst and best qualities of humanity and profoundly asks us which is the more important.

    I've never paid attention to Children of Men as a cinematic experience. Every time I watched this film I expected an action flick. I was dumb.
    Children of Men, although flawed, is a cinematic journey, during which we take part in a mission to save humanity by keeping alive the only pregnant woman on earth.

    Enter Clive Owen. A man, who not only earned huge respect from me as an actor for this film but also gave the best performance…

    Miriam: As the sound of the playgrounds faded, the despair set in. Very odd, what happens in a world without children's voices.

    Images are a wonderful thing. They take to you a world you can't imagine. They just seduce you. This is what Children Of Men is 'A Perfect Image'.

    Emmanuel Lubezki when I hear this name, I just know I am going to watch something that is just spectacular and something more than beautiful. We have seen what Emmanuel…

    It's 2027 and all the women on earth have become infertile. The world is plunged into chaos and things aren't looking good. Until one young woman is discovered to be pregnant.

    Children Of Men is a raw and gritty film. It certainly matches the run down and dirty environment around the characters. The filming style is reminiscent of a documentary at times, with many long takes and camera movement. There are quite a few long takes in this (which Alfonso…

    A sci-fi classic that will stand the test of time. Extraordinary world-building by showing and hiding just the right amount. Cinematography is astounding. Direction is brave and concise. Highlights: Cinematography, atmosphere, hippie Michael Caine.

    One of those odd cases where a bunch of things that I just think are ok all add up into something spectacular.

    'Children of Men' is one of, if not the best, apocalyptic films, but that is not the point. The acting is the point. The setting is the point. The story is the point. The ending is the point.

    Alfonoso Cuarons direction is undeniably sublime, the art direction and cinematography is superb, and great supporting roles by Ejiofor and Mullan contribute to the films success. But despite all of this, at no point did Children of Men pull me into the world and make me feel despair for the endless sacrifices made by the characters.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Screened for dissertation.

    This one's too close to me to give it much of an objective look, which is a drag because it's supposed to be part of a diss chapter. This is the umpteenth viewing, and it never loses its oomph. This film is so strikingly much better than Birdman, despite Lubezki upping the game long-take-wise, that it functions as an apologia for the potential value of both the ultra-long take and keeping that ultra-long take relatively short. Cuarón…
