Gravity 2013 ****

90m
This is documentary like space fiction. Most enthralling is to get the feel of being in a space station, seeing the planet in full spherical splendor and the vastness of which we are a part, and which is a part of us. It is mingled with a human adventure, with the fear of death a close companion. It builds up to an explosive suspense, as the astronaut joyfully joins feet with firm ground. This is a great true film about the new frontier--the grandeur of space. We do not need aliens or faraway fantasia--the first step beyond the atmosphere is sufficiently astounding.

It is indeed a great film to be remembered for many reasons - I'd love to watch it again at my home to see whether it still looks terrific on a smaller screen.
