I don't normally enjoy nonlinear films anyway, and when I have, it has to be truly engulfing to rival how disjointed the story is. Annihilation is an example of a film so disjointed and jarring, that I truly believe the sole purpose of its creation is to frustrate viewers. I liked nothing about it, but I give it two stars for atmosphere.
Unlikehis debut venture, Annihilation is not everyone's cup of coffee. It's an adventure but with so many possibilities, which is either way ends with confusion and This movie exactly did that. For it's complicated structure the movie tanked at the box office but who cares! Garland and his team delivered one of the best movie of this year. Direction, Performances, Cinematography, Score, Sound Design, Production Design, Visuals, every goddamn thing was perfect & special credit to Sonoya Mizuno for her terrifying motion capture performance as an Humanoid. It was worth my time & who loves Andrei Tarkvosky's Solaris and his other features, I guaranteed you'll not disappoint.
Ex Machina and Annihilation are both directed by Alex Garland, and both dissect the delicate relationship between man and mystery. While Ex Machina investigates the relationship between mankind and machines, Annihilation investigates man and nature. The parallels between the two films are striking, but Annihilation falls short in comparison, despite having two strong legs to stand on. Some of the scenery felt cheesy, but the story was satisfying.
Typical stereotypical 2018 Hollywood film. Only women allowed. Not one of them is allowed to be flaunting or sexy. The world is threatened and a masculine female leads four women into the unknown. They begin to panic and wet their panties. Yup that makes sense... and the poor shellshocked husband? Well, he is as relevant as the beefcake in Ghostbusters 2016 or the men in the female Mad Max. Keep on making all-ugly female movies like this and The Last Jedi...PS: Half a dozen reviews tell us that there are all these hidden messages, allegories, metaphors and deep deep philosophies in this film yet none of them would tell us what they may be. Could they be referring to the idea that the end of civilization is here and they have an EMS nag and a masculine cross dresser go seek answers?
