Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
There is no gene for the human spirit.
Science fiction drama about a future society in the era of indefinite eugenics where humans are set on a life course depending on their DNA. The young Vincent Freeman is born with a condition that would prevent him from space travel, yet he is determined to infiltrate the GATTACA space program.
I have been in multi-year relationships with women who weren't half as good looking as this film.
Film #73 of Project 90
”It's funny, you work so hard, you do everything you can to get away from a place, and when you finally get your chance to leave, you find a reason to stay.”
Andrew Niccol starts Gattaca by picturing a “not too distant future” where genetic engineering has changed everything, it has revolutionized the way people think and act and it has brought a new social order to the society, people are no longer divided to rich and poor or educated and uneducated, you are either a child of god or a child of science, genetic modification has become a routine part of the cycle of life and now everything works differently. That exceptionally alarming and…
It is the total and convincing immersion in a future world that makes this one of the strongest science fiction films I've ever seen.
That is a bold statement I know, but for me it is a fact, it just took me a while to realise it. See, the first time I saw it I was distracted by the meandering third act in which the plot drudgingly treads towards its excpected resolution.
And while that problem still exists I was struck this time by two things. For a film that is almost 15 years old it still looks absolutely stunning and it does what any film in this genre should do. It takes away all suspension of disbelief by presenting…
I love Gattaca more each time I see it. This is my third time through it and this time I realized it basically has the same strengths and weaknesses as Blade Runner, another sci-fi favorite of mine. The acting is wooden and the pacing is slow enough to put an insomniac to sleep. This was Andrew Niccol's first time directing, and while he still hasn't done much to prove himself as a director (In Time, The Host...) I think some of Gattaca's failures can be chalked up to inexperience. Personally I just don't care about them.
I'll be damned if this isn't high concept science fiction at its best. Every detail of the story is designed…
I thought they just scientifically altered their DNA.. they all act as if they've been lobotomized as well!
While it's as dry as a dead dingos donger! It was visually stunning and more importantly it is a provocative piece of sci-fi cinema!
Ableism (They say that disabilities (in this case, lower limb paralysis) exclude people from being "productive members of society".)
Menschen werden nie einfach nur Menschen sein. Auch wenn sie es schaffen über Hautfarbe und sexuelle Orientierung hinwegzusehen, werden sie andere Wege finden die Gesellschaft zu spalten.
Gattaca uncovers a vision of an idealistic future of space flight and advanced computers with no robots or means for surveillance.
What Hollywood says it is: A thoughtful, intense suspense thriller featuring heady ideas and powerful performances.
What it really is: A deliberate, beautifully shot and extraordinarily inventive sci-fi suspense film that presents ideas far more intriguing than its story.
There is no doubt that Andrew Niccol's Gattaca is a hugely intelligent film. Its concepts and premise are highly impressive in their plausibility, with a term coined inside the film - 'genoism' - raising legitimate concerns within the scientific community of unlocking the human genome. There is no doubt, also, that it is a gorgeously shot film, with incredible set design and visual elegance that elevates the film to phenomenal levels. There exists just one issue to Gattaca that will make…
Gattaca es una película repleta de aspectos intrínsicos pero sin llegar a ser moralista, pues se desplaza principalmente como un thriller con grandes pinceladas de sci-fy.
El film está tan bien montado que fluye sola, sin necesidad de grandes interpretaciones por parte de los personajes (pero tampoco dejemos de lado el buen trabajo de Thurman,Hawke y Law). Los planos, tramos y escenografías se unen perfectamente a esos escenarios abiertos, cubiertos de una fría fotografía.
Sin embargo nunca me atrapó completamente. Puedo pensar que uno de los factores, a pesar de ser un poco más comercial y haber salido después, fue el haber visto anteriormente In Time(Timberlake/Seyfried)
Gattaca is an involving, character-driven Sci-Fi that benefits from a charismatic supporting performance by Jude Law.
Maybe a little too illogical, but a beautiful 90's sci-fi film.
