Ep-96 Children of Men (2006 film)

Alfonso Cuarón’s apocalyptic masterpiece CHILDREN OF MEN is a modern classic starring Julianne Moore, Clive Owen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Charlie Hunnam, and Michael Caine. His adaptation of P. D. James’ novel of the same name differs significantly but stands on its own as breathtaking art and perhaps even rises above. 

Topics: The horrors of U.S. detention centers, the effect of the long take “oners”, the special rig necessary to get an iconic scene, the use of classic works of art hidden in the film, a story of a mishap that is the stuff of filmmaking legend, how Harry Potter paved the way for this movie to be made, and the completion of Theo Faron’s character arc.
