Let the sun shine in

February 1, 2010

Watched ‘Sunshine’ over the weekend – Danny Boyle’s sci-fi from a couple of years ago.

Plot is pretty standard sci-fi stuff: a big dollop of pseudo-science with a crisp icing of vaguely spiritual mumbo jumbo.

And when it mutates part way through into a different sort of film altogether, the effect is pretty jarring.

But – especially towards the end – there’s all kinds of visual jiggery pokery with upside down shots, twisting angles, random slow-motion and ‘subliminal message’-type insertions. Which makes for a visually spectacular ending, even if the plot’s a bit of a let down.
