Review of Gattaca (1997)

Moving picture, 106 minutes

Ambitious, pretty, and relevant to society. This type of pitfall really is something we have to watch out for, so as not to create it. Therefore it’s great to see a reasonably serious film on the topic—more serious than “The Masterpiece Society” (1992)—but the execution is flawed. It’s more drama than dystopia, too stylized in its prettiness, too predictable, and regrettably anthropocentric. There is indeed no gene for the human spirit, we made it up to feel good.
