Video: In GRAVITY’s Orbit

Alfonso Cuarón and the cinematic precipice.



This is a retrospective glance at the career of a filmmaker whose unique artistic vision and poetic voice, I believe, will be an essential part of the future of filmmaking. Given the remarkable success, both critically and commercially, of Gravity, I wanted to pay tribute to Alfonso Cuarón’s  cinematic inclinations: his understanding of cinema as a threshold, of cinema as “pure cinema”—and his deep interest in associating cinema with the dreamlike.
