The writers incorrectly attributed the quote, "I am become death, destroyer of worlds," to Joseph Oppenheimer. The quote is from the Baghavad Ghita. Joseph Oppenheimer wrote that he said it after the first A-bomb test. His coworkers who were present with him at the viewing reported that all Oppenheimer said was, "It works." See more »

Writer Director Alex Garland is a powerhouse of talent
I rarely do this because there is so much rubbish out there but I'm going to recommend a movie. Writer Director Alex Garland has done an amazing job, it's beautifully shot, fantastically lit, intelligently written, brilliantly cast. the edit is original and brave, as is the direction of the edit, There is nothing superfluous, to the contrary it' has a sharp Zen like quality, clearly the application of a disciplined mind.
The movie is's self is engaging, thoroughly watchable, the characters are simple and yet layered with complexity. The film strikes the perfect balance of not spoon feeding and not dumbing down but not being too arty or intellectual just for the sake of it.
Best seen in a cinema I reckon.
