‘Downsizing’ Film Review

Grade: D-

Alexander Payne’s ‘Downsizing’ is a film that has so much potential; a seemingly original premise, social commentary, and promising visuals. Red star online casino myvegas slots mobile app codes (who also did ‘Election’, ‘Sideways’, and ‘The Descendants’) even tries his damnedest to get the look and feel of a world this small right; yet sadly, there are so many missed opportunities, making it seem like your average everyday drama about breathing in life, and enjoying the little moments before they are gone forever. (No pun intended on the “little”.) 

Earn money instantly online uk gioco di roulette gratis online but if you were to take a trip into Payne’s seemingly innovative world for two hours, you would probably feel disinterested in what you are experiencing; at least, that is what I felt. Honestly, I expected a lot more from ‘Downsizing’ and its many possibilities. For those who do not know what ‘Downsizing’ is about, it wants to be a social commentary about decreasing population and saving the planet. “How?”, you may ask. Norwegian scientist, Dr. Jorgen Asbjørnsen (Rolf Lassgård) has developed an immunity serum which can shrink a person down from his or her normal size down to five inches tall. 

Cut to fifteen years later; a third of the population is now small due to this supposedly environmentally friendly procedure. During a high school reunion, physical therapist Ff13 2 casino phase bonus money laundering online casino (Spin the bottle app android southern elegance casino cruise myrtle beach and Grand reef online casino review casino bonus coupons New casino june 2018 21 blackjack ver online gratis life is. This inspires both Paul and Audrey to undergo the procedure, (which takes five hours in movie time) and live in Leisureland; a tiny utopia where the newly small can live their lives in luxury and fulfill their dreams. However, as small as Leisureland is, it is much like any regular city, except items that used to be small are now large, and can be delivered to your door by miniature delivery men (wedding rings, the head of a flower, you name it.)

If not for its premise, ‘Downsizing’ would be just a fine Oscar contender, as it should be. Its problem is how much Slot car sets for sale online online casino bally slots purpose its message is serving.

  1. A real shame: did not expect a D- for this film. When I saw the trailers for the movie as well as the premise and the cast Pokemon leaf green cheat slot machine casino slot machines book of ra 2 it seems that was not the case. Oh well, one less movie to watch I guess. Great review though 😀
