Ethan Hawke ( left) is the pro­tag­o­nist of New Zealand­born An­drew Nic­col’s vastly ac­com­plished fea­ture de­but – a provoca­tive and chal­leng­ing crys­tal- ball gaze into a fu­ture dic­tated by biological per­fec­tion. Hawke is sup­ported by a ca­reer- best turn from Jude Law and an un­char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally un­sexy Uma Thur­man who re­de­fines the term “un­der­stated”. Shot on Su­per 35mm, cin­e­matog­ra­pher Slavomir Idziak frames the metic­u­lously crafted set de­sign with an other- worldly pal­ette of colours and shad­ows. Nic­col’s bold vi­sion of a cold, ster­ile civil­i­sa­tion reaches poetic heights.
