AD ASTRA is a meditation on the harms of emotional repression, the struggles of toxic masculinity and the psychological deterrents of unresolved relationships.
An opus to the infiniteness of space - a frontier to reflect upon our inner-most feelings that we struggle to repress.
It brings so much life to our solar system... So much animation amongst the quietness, so much presence among the emptiness...
Richter’s score further adds, in richness, to the solar system’s echoes, seemingly fitting in with our larger than life solar system.
The entire film is just wow.
