  • Flawed Natural Society
    737 words
    Andrew Niccol's 1997 film Gattaca supports the belief that nature, despite its defects, is preferable to a flawless genetically engineered existence. This idea is explored through the character of Vincent who exhibits desire, resilience and determination, natural 'human' elements that cannot be manufactured and are seemingly not present in the 'faultless' future that is presented in Gattaca. These characteristics appear to be contrasted by the other characters in the film, such as Anton and the ...

  • Most Perfect Things About Soderbergh's Film
    2,736 words
    Memento is a film that distinguishes itself through its startling structure and hypnotic use of repetition.
