Directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Babel) and starring Michael Keaton; Birdman is a black comedy that tells the story of a man's battle with his ego, and his quest for acceptance and notoriety. It explores the fragility of one's mind, and the idea of 'celebrity' and Hollywood, and the significance that each play in today's fame-obsessed society.

The surprising answer is: nobody knows. Physicists, despite trying for almost a century to rule it out, have so far failed. The known laws of physics do not forbid time travel. In fact, they appear to make it easy - at least in principle.

I suspect Gravity might just be the dawning sun of a new genre in movie-making: the 'super-immersive' movie concept. It will influence the movies that get produced and how they are later marketed.

Why Film Lovers Should Love Effects Movies Too

Danny Leigh | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Entertainment
Danny Leigh

Throughout my film-going life, effects have been if not quite a dirty word for certain audiences, then one met with a weary roll of the eyes. But I've also always felt the snottiness around effects arose because they reminded critics in particular of the movies' origins as a circus entertainment, a trashy diversion designed to thrill sensation-hungry crowds.

Gravity (Review)

Gravity is simply beautiful to look at, a galactic ballet, if you like. Tears float like bubbles and flames curls like tendrils of golden ringlets, and all the while planet Earth is spread out before the astronauts, an awe-inspiring tableaux. Meanwhile, Jonas Cuaron's script ups the ante at every turn, keeping us hooked and fully invested in the story all the way.
