Children Of Men (2006) – A Hall of Fame Quick Capsule Review
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Children Of Men was one of the most original and thought provoking films of 2006 and rewatching it is still as brilliant and impactful as the day I first watched it. The dystopian world created by Cuarón is so real you can almost taste it. This, backed up with some epic cinematography (not least one of the best ‘one take’ shots in cinema) and you have a real must own film. In short Children Of Men is powerful, expertly made and once again shows that with the right script and director, Clive Owen is as good as anyone out there.
Best Bit: The one-take Bexhill sequence
