'Gravity' is visually historical and contains beautiful artistic vision.
Most visual focused films are nothing but visuals that have lame plots. Alfonso Cuaron instead makes you feel like your drifting in space in a historically mesmerizing way. The plot is very simple. Sandra Bullock plays a space engineer who's work goes completely wrong after a solar flare causing her to drift around in space and find her way back to earth. Even though the film isn't realistic, it still is one of the greatest works of art in terms of visual aspects. The visual aspects of film making enforced in 'Gravity' is nothing more than amazing. On top of that you have interesting characters with strong symbols and messages. What's fun about 'Gravity' is that it is entertaining and beautiful. It shows us how cinema has evolved and shows us new ways of film making. The awe I experienced while viewing this motion picture still stays with me and makes me appreciate just how brilliant visual artists can be. Many will say that having a film with just all visuals and no strong themes is pointless. While that can be absolutely true, 'Gravity' is not an example of that kind of film. 'Gravity' instead is a visual work of art that has themes such as persistence, importance, remediation, and sacrifice that audiences can be moved by as well. If your dream is to someday travel to space, don't waste your time, just see this film.
