So if you wake up one morning and it's a particularly beautiful day, you'll know we made it. - CapaMay that tramp, goddess Athena bless Director Danny Boyle and writer Alex Garland for their talent and superior contributions to the film industry. And may they be blessed even more for when their asses work together. They gave us the flawed yet highly underrated The Beach; the tight 28 Days Later and now I just got treated to their best collaboration yet; the Sci-Fi opus SUNSHINE.
Visually; hey it’s Danny F*cking Boyle; what do you think? Boyle’s film Shallow Grave was one of the first films we were shown in film school; and to me it was a revelation as to editing and
communicating narrative via visual aesthetics.
Sunshine was no different. Boyle’s polished imagery tagged with stirring editing, top notch special effect and incredible production designs (loved them gold-like spacesuits) made sure to
keep me immersed, affected and wowed by the world I was tossed in. Add to all that a
stirring score that often sent tingles down my crotch, bang-on performances by all involved (with Cillian Murphy owning the scenery
hardcore), a handful of poignant bits that had my tear ducks kick into “bitch mode”,
a “horror-ish” twist that gave the final act the edge it needed to send me
packing with gusto and you get new Sci-Fi classic! Been a while since we had one of those!
On the dark side of this moon; some of the characters didn’t get the attention they deserved with Cassie (played by the lovely Rose Byrne), in particular really begging for more screen time. The character’s relationship with Capa also “teased” me with possibilities but they never went full steam ahead with it hence making me wonder why they bothered in the first place. Finally the flick did have random moments of shaky “I can’t see shit, stop snorting blow already” cam shots; but they weren’t prominent enough for them to leave a bitter taste in my Rum or/and my Coke.
All in all SUNSHINE was one of the best films I've seen this year. Sure it sported boo-boos here and there but nothing severe enough to tarnish the experience. A lot of work went into this flick on every level and you know what; it f*cking showed. Cinema for the sakes of cinema not for the che and ching first! HOW REFRESHING! Hookers and beers to all involved with this production! You've brightened up my month! THANK YOU!
