Children of Men

This movie was released around the end of last year and I only gotten to rent it now. The director tells a powerful story through long single takes. One of the long take scenes of the car journey reminds me of the car escape scene from Spielberg's The War of the Worlds. Both are shot to perfection and gives you a sense of urgency and real time. It's amazing how it is put together considering what would happen if there's going to be a retake. Brilliant choreography.
