Annihilation ★★★½

Classic Alex Garland. A visual spectacle. A trippy soundtrack. What I care most about when watching movies is the experience, the feeling you feel as you sit down watching. I felt wonder throughout. Then that wonder turned to fear in the final act. It was mesmerizing. And normally I don’t care about the plot holes, as they can often be ignored. But at times when following the story I felt myself saying, much like Natalie Portman, “I don’t know.” Nonetheless, I do know I enjoyed the experience.
