    Something about this movie intrigued me from the first preview that I saw. I’m a fan of the lead actor, Domhnall Gleeson from one of my favorite movies, About Time. I hadn’t seen much that the other 2 main actors, Alicia Vikander and Oscar Isaac had been in but now they’ve become more established with Isaac and Gleeson having significant roles in The Force Awakens and the rest of the newest Star Wars trilogy.

    The science twist was mind-bending after the initial viewing and I saw it again shortly after I had seen it the first time to get a better understanding of it. Watching it again, I’m not sure that I picked up a lot of new things but just gained a fuller appreciation for the complexity of the story and the aspects of the story that would scare the crap out of people if they really understood what was already possible.

    Norway stands in for a remote location in Alaska and it looks beautiful. (as it better because Alaska is gorgeous!) The vast images of mountains and waterfalls and everything is really spectacular, something that could have easily been “mailed in” in a low-budget movie like this but wasn’t.

    It’s not for everyone as others I’ve talked to just aren’t that fascinated by it, finding it somewhat slow and uninteresting but it hits the nail on the head for me. It’s in my Top 25 of all time!
