Astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father and unravel a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet. His journey will uncover secrets that challenge the nature of human existence and our place in the cosmos.
A true film noir with great acting by Pitt and Jones, dazzling visuals and breathtaking views of our solar system. It's a haunting, metaphoric travel into the soul of the protagonist. I personally think, that, if one fails to recognize this and hopes for "the movie to get better", one has only looked for an action-rich SciFi blockbuster - which James Gray never wanted it to be. Many of the scenes (especially towards the middle) reminded me of the quieter scenes in Blade Runner 2049, a personal favourite, and many other of the greats, like 2001 and Apocalypse Now. Highly recommendable.
