I will always highly rate sci-fi films that require good brain usage. Alex Garland has been known to write and direct a good amount of these. This is no exception.
Annihilation mixes such thought-provoking sci-fi and horror to present us with this unique story of otherworld visitors. It's a rather slow burn, but that's one of the things I like most about it. Quite colorful and artsy. High on the science, which is something I can always appreciate.
Great performance by the ensemble cast led by Natalie Prtman.
NOTE: THE BEAR. 😖
