Gravity ★★★★½

With some of the most unbearable and inexplicably frightening opening minutes, I knew I was in for a ride. The dreadful anticipation of whatever bad is shortly happening is captured brilliantly, contrasted with the incredibly beautiful scenery you're dropped into.
The short runtime of 90 minutes makes for a thrilling experience that is hardly ever matched in movies, giving no time to breathe. Gravity is an amazing achievement in visual effects, and is sure to keep you on the edge of the seat all the way throughout.
