Cineplex Movie Blog – Alfonso Cuaron on Sandra and outer space

It’s been seven years since Mexican auteur Alfonso Cuarón directed a feature film and after the impression he left with Children of Men, audiences were understandably hungry for more of his singular storytelling and knack for creating unforgettable visuals.

With his space saga Gravity, Cuarón took a different approach, thanks in part to his son and co-screenwriter Jonás Cuarón, and decided to use dialogue sparingly, instead letting the visual metaphor of the medical engineer (Sandra Bullock in a superb and committed performance) in a free fall during a botched space mission quicken your pulse, pull at heartstrings and awe its audience with views you’d swear were real.
