Last year, billionaire AVATAR filmmaker James Cameron was praising and vouching for Ang Lee’s THE LIFE OF PI, and now, this year, he’s praising and vouching for Alfonso Cuaron’s upcoming space thriller, GRAVITY.
Via Variety, Here’s Cameron’s brief review of GRAVITY
“I was stunned, absolutely floored. I think it’s the best space photography ever done, I think it’s the best space film ever done, and it’s the movie I’ve been hungry to see for an awful long time … What is interesting is the human dimension. Alfonso and Sandra working together to create an absolutely seamless portrayal of a woman fighting for her life in zero gravity.
I think it’s really important for people in Hollywood to understand what was accomplished here … I’m sure Alfonso had a real uphill battle with the studio, with everyone involved, to get it the way it needed to look. But he knew in his mind how it needed to look, and he went after it.”
Cameron is an established name when it comes to the matters of sci-fi space, not to mention he’s one of the most respected film directors of all time, so his words do matter and Alfonso should feel proud to have Cameron in his corner.
GRAVITY arrives October 4th, 2013
