Film Review: Gravity

by Mariana Galecki

Alfonso Cuarón and his son, Jonas Cuarón, bring to the screen a spectacular feat with Gravity. It’s hard to describe the movie without spoiling it since a key part of the movie is its ability to create an atmosphere of suspense and uncertainty. This ambience is amplified by masterful transitions between sound and silence which deftly suit the movie’s setting in space.

Walking into the theater, one expects something incredibly lovely in light of Cuarón and his team having accomplished an amazing backtrack of films like the Mexican movie “Y Tu Mamá También” and the internationally beloved “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.” Possible flaws might include the lack of scientific accuracy in the film, as noted by famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson’s tweets.
