Gravity reminds us of the uncertainty and danger inherent in living, but it also reminds us that crisis can be the catalyst of new understandings about ourselves and the world around us.
I kind of miss the monsters. Seeing DeNiro today make one silly comedy after another is more depressing than seeing him play a villain.

When asked, "What would you want an audience to take away from this film?" Pulitzer prize winning writer, Tracy Letts, responded, "I don't know. I have no idea how to answer that question." That statement of ambiguity justifies the existence of film critics.
As a woman in my 50s, walking down a city street, I feel invisible to almost any man walking past me. I've been that unseen woman over and over again. Friends have echoed this experience to me as well. Single? No one wants to date a midlife woman either.
When Ryan cries and the weightless tears float out to us, she asks if anyone will mourn and pray for her. I believe her concerns represent the fears in all of us. It is a moment of complete aloneness.

Gravity is only 91 minutes long but is so short on ideas that it keeps repeating itself. A cloud of orbiting malevolent debris keeps trying to kill our heroes. They keep jetting off to a new refuge and finding, so to speak, no room at the inn.
Today celebrates United Nations Day -- a day to remember why the United Nations (UN) was created. It's a perfect day to challenge yourself to think outside your own cultural borders and expand your capacity to embrace diversity.
In my mind, the film is about transcending gravity; the quest to live life a few feet off the ground. The Kaballah teaches that growth and impact emerge from living outside our comfort zone. The ground offers security but the most memorable moments in life and fulfillment arise when we strive to live a little higher and brighter.
It really had the opportunity to transcend, and despite being a cinematic masterpiece, I'm not sure it is a film I will want to watch again once it's out of IMAX.
I'm generally a Before Midnight/Blue Jasmine kinda guy, but Gravity is one of the tightest, most terrifying, most beautiful, and most profoundly spiritual pieces of art I've ever encountered.
There's a heated debate going on right now among cinéastes about the proper way to see Gravity. Some say that the very best way to experience Alfonso Cuarón's incredibly intense space epic is by catching the 3D version.
Can we maybe call the year right now? Because unless Orson Scott Card appears before the preview audience of Ender's Game to introduce everyone to his husband, there's probably not going to be a better science fiction filmgoing experience than Gravity.
