Children of Men

I’d been looking forward to seeing Children of Men since James first pointed me at the trailer. I finally managed to get out to a theatre to see it, and I was thoroughly impressed. I’m having trouble articulating why it was so brilliant – all I can really say is that I was engrossed from the beginning to the end. I didn’t even feel the time go by. This is the kind of movie that will haunt you. I don’t think I can say anything more eloquent about the film than Keith Phipps, in his Onion A.V. Club review when he describes the film as “… a heartbreaking, bullet-strewn valentine to what keeps us human”. Highly recommended.
