Children of Men

I dare say I cannot recall a Sci-Fi film of this caliber since. . .(gulp) Bladerunner(?). Maybe it's the dystopian slant (that would be putting it mildly), but Children of Men and Bladerunner (possibly my favorite film) both hit the high notes that occasionally take science fiction to the heights of good art. Bladerunner seems to get better with each viewing, (and get ready for the 25th anniversary super-deluxe re-release, including in theatres!), and I think that CoM may be the same way. I plan on paying to get back into a theatre to see this one again. Great articles in the New York Times, but you get no referral, because I had the pleasure of seeing this film with a minimum of plot/cast spoiling and think the experience was enhanced as a result.

You just think it is like Blade runner because that is what the preview says!

I have seen no preview, but the similarities are so abundant that to miss the comparison would be hard. I can't stop thinking and talking about this movie.
