[Note: With the film now out on DVD in the UK, here's a reposting of our review of White Space, aka Beyond White Space, from its Us VOD release back in January]
In space Moby Dick can hear you scream…
White Space introduces us to the idea of the titular “white space” and that is, areas of space that somehow have remarkable healing properties that they can imbue on anyone who passed into them (for some reason). The only problem is there are space leviathans that protect them (for some reason). Our opening scene takes us 20 something years into the past for us to see a boy lose his dad to the space monsters. So, revenge it is then.
We have Moby Dick in space, revenge for revenge’s sake as it were.
