    Director Alex Garland seems to have noticed there’s a decent amount of fans (especially fans of Annihilation) who wanted a new movie with a psychedelic bent and Garland sure can make such a movie. It’s psychologically calm but quite uncomfortable and eerie at the same time. Intriguingly odd stuff for sure!

    Intriguing trivia:

    “Ralph Fiennes was attached to star as Saul Tenser after Nicolas Cage, the first option for the main role, dropped out. Léa Seydoux and Kristen Stewart were among the cast announced for the film.

    No matter how you slice it, this movie is astonishingly lovable! Edward Norton’s lunatic rants during the first half!

    “Oh, come on people, don't be so pathetic. Stop looking at the world through your cellphone screens. Have a real experience! Does anybody give a shit about truth other than me?

So, I'm gonna work with the chicken. Hey that’s good bird, man!”
