Alfonso Cuarón: latest news, projects and info.
Hi all ... I joined this community for the sole purpose of linking a bunch of articles on Children of Men to people who may actually get some use/enjoyment out of them. |
Anyway, apologies if some are really old-hat. Everyone has probably seen J Hoberman's rave, but maybe not the appreciation of the 2006 movie year in long takes from another Village Voice critic, Jim Ridley: "The astonishing single takes in Children of Men — particularly one sustained shot that follows Clive Owen’s cynic-turned-savior high and low through the rubble of an urban war zone — seem likely to tickle movie geeks’ taste buds. But they never become, in the cautionary words of Cuarón’s cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, “an Olympics of long takes.” In blocks of real time, they convey, as movies rarely do, the sense of existing in a nightmare that can’t be blinked away."
