Gravity is a work of art. It’s a seamless technological achievement with images and scenes that are just as painful as they look. Dr. Stone (Sandra Bullock) is an astronaut caught floating around space after her shuttle is hit by bits of an exploding Russian space station. Communications are cut off and Dr. Stone finds herself having to live by her own wits as she moves around the spacy void, alone.
The film is one of those lone survival genre films in the style of cast away and open water. It ups the fear factor by throwing the heroine in a zero gravity setting where people bounce off each other, and go spinning needlessly into space. For an actress know, for her comedy, Bullock does a great job at letting us into her world. We experience her plight and feel for her situation.
Gravity is from the mind of Alfonso Cuaron (children of men). The director loves technical challenges, and it shows in this film. The audience along with bullock are tortured for 90 minutes, and shows us that outer space, no one can still hear you scream.
