Children of Men ★★★★½

The last thirty minutes are stunning with the full weight of the film's themes blasting my retinas. The rest of it? My immersion came and went in patches; admittedly I checked the time rather frequently. This may very well need a rewatch now that I can gauge the film's underlying messaging with the context of what's to happen. Still a damn good film regardless, but the potential for a more fulfilling viewing seems right around the corner.
