I saw Children of Men today. Wow, this movie was so deep, so wide … It’s something everyone should see, even if this isn’t usually your kind of film. And I know it will probably be ignored. Sadly.
There were a couple scenes that took my breath away. The one that I think was intended to was the one where they stop fighting to allow her to bring the baby outside. You get that it’s the take-your-breath-away-making-a-point scene but it was so well done. I really was holding my breath there. A wonderful poignant moment, full of the hope of the human species and then … bang! right back to annhilation. Wonderful moviemaking.
