Here is another movie I have been patiently waiting for - Lucy.
Somehow I never made it to see it in theaters, however, it was released on DVD as well as iTunes. So today I had a chance to fully immerse myself into the movie. You have to be open minded to see it, criticize it after you seen and digested it. This goes along with the movie Cloud Atlas, just to name a recent movie, in terms of digesting the concept. Of course, Morgan Freeman in his role as the behind the scenes scientist is brilliant as usual.
Scarlett Johansson seems to be everywhere, along the lines of Lucy (in experimental terms) she starred in Under Your Skin. "Johansson is phenomenal in every sense of the word," enthused Peter Travers for Rolling Stone. "She joins Glazer in creating a brave experiment in cinema that richly rewards the demands it makes. The result is an amazement, a film of beauty and shocking gravity."
Lucy is a 2014 English-language French science fiction action film written and directed by Luc Besson and produced by his wife Virginie Silla. The film was released on July 25, 2014, and became a box office success,grossing over $458 million against a budget of $40 million.
