DVD Review - Children of Men



How much more can I possibly praise this movie? Best film of 2006 by a long shot. Visionary, masterful, groundbreaking, and utterly original. I'm actually getting tired of saying how great it is.

Let's just go ahead and forget about the truly horrendous cover art, cause the DVD is pretty good, with some mini docs that break down some of the tracking shots. There is a crazy montage showing how the birth scene was done, and an Alfonso Cuaron directed doc which compares modern cultural issues to the themes in CoM. Oh yeah, and interviews with the cast and also a philosopher who tells us what we already know - this film is amazing.

Film (****) - DVD (***)
