Payne and Taylor are working on a larger palette than usual, but like their shrunken characters, the filmmakers humor and their sharp observation of the human condition have survived the change in size and scope.
The most whimsically outlandish film of Payne s career, though that doesn t mean it s made with anything less than his usual highly thought-out and controlled master-craftsman bravura.
Captivating, funny and possessed of a surprise-filled zig-zag structure that makes it impossible to anticipate where it s headed, this is a deeply humane film that, like the best Hollywood classics, feels both entirely of its moment and timeless.
Downsizing is a self-satisfied sci-fi nothingburger that shies away from its early suggestiveness and goes as deep as your average Black Mirror episode.
... "Downsizing" is rife with witty visual touches and inspired comic premises but never quite comes together as fully successful whole.
