So intelligent science fiction still exists ...
2 October 2013 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

Polypore, a film about a young man on the run from a multinational pharma company, is an in recent times increasingly rare specimen of thought-provoking and intelligent science fiction that nevertheless never gets dull. And while I have to admit the very complex story is at times hard to follow (in its complexity rather than its basic narrative), it is incredibly well-paced, finds the right balance between delivering a serious message and outright satire, and has an air of mystery to it throughout to keep the audience guessing. Add to that some great action and locations, a rich visual language, and a solid cast, and you've got yourself a pretty good movie. Recommended!
