This is dreamy, brain melting sci-fi that feels so surreal and unique, you’ll leave the film either loving or hating it.
Directed by Alex Garland
A biologist signs up for a dangerous, secret expedition where the laws of nature don’t apply.
I dont think its possible to describe the final 30 minutes of Annihilation and do it justice, which is the best compliment i can give it. As a piece of visual storytelling, Annihilation blows it out of the water. Garland’s latest work pushes the boundaries of mainstream cinema by offering a film that is so unapologetic in its vision, you cant help but applaud. Not since Arrival (2016) has a film captured my attention so completely and left me so consistently in awe.
I mean what else can i say without spoiling it. The performances are great. The female representation is fantastic. The visual effects and design should get nominated if not outright win. If you love sci fi, then you need to watch this immediately on the largest screen you can find. This is a wholly original piece of work, that will likely draw wildly different opinions and interpretations.
