Children Of Men

Alfonso Cuarón’s Children Of Men was one of the best films I’ve seen this year…great acting, a poignant and hopeful story, a haunting score and a pair of breathtaking set pieces, shot in a single take.

Unlike movies such as Minority Report and Blade Runner, the world inhabited by Cuarón’s characters is realised with much more subtlety. In fact, I’d missed most of the satirical content playing in the background of the movie – government propaganda, advertising, display systems – until I saw Foreign Office‘s showreel of their design work for the movie.

If you enjoyed Children Of Men, this clip (14Mb Quicktime) is worth a couple minutes of your time 🙂
