Aniara

Aniara ★★★★

Ah, depressive space movies, my favorite subgenre. 

An ambitious project that’s based on a Swedish poem. The execution is gloomy, it gets darker as the movie progresses which slowly results in an existential depression. From order and hope to chaos, suicides and cults. Visually its really good and it stays consistent, colorful lighting and some pretty good looking effects considering its budget. The soundtrack works well - there are some nice techno tunes - but could’ve been a bit more experimental and louder at some points. In the future this will achieve a cult status for sure.
