    Hale County This Morning, This Evening

    ★★★½

    I feel like this loose ethnographic collage is perhaps better suited to a museum or art gallery, but that doesn’t mean I regret letting it wash over me in a theater.

    ★★★★½

    FIRST MAN’s greatest trick is making the voyage to the moon feel almost like science fiction, a long hard slog to an still seemingly impossible destination. That, and keeping Gosling’s charisma earthbound.

    ★★★★½

    Saw this as part of a “dystopia” film series at the Cinerama. Especially in that context, Cuarón’s abiding interest in representing the small moments of humanity in the face of utter overwhelming hopelessness is all the more impressive. 

    (As an aside, the only way that this hasn’t aged well is that 2027 seems too far in the future for the events depicted.)
