Perceptive, warm and humane in ways I didn't know I could expect from a movie with this premise. But strip away the sci-fi sheen and what do you have? The story of every relationship, or at least every love. And the story of self-actualization and growth beyond a partner, and the story of grief over a past failed relationship, and all these broad themes about longing and connection writ so small, but so precisely. There are moments in this film…
Just outstanding, imaginative, humanistic science fiction of the highest order. Incredible! More than fulfills the promise of Rian Johnson as a visionary director, if you somehow weren't convinced by BRICK and THE BROTHERS BLOOM. Thrills and action and big ideas with a warm, beating heart in the center.
