Dec 5, 2011

John Pavlich ( and Tysto ( join me once again for a commentary on the 1997 sci-fi film Gattaca. This film is the freshmen effort of writer and director Andrew Niccol who has been apart of many critically acclaimed and noteworthy films such as Lord of War and The Truman Show. Even if you're not interested in his works it can be said that looking at the credits of Andrew Niccol his oeuvre definitely reflects a unique eye and style. 

Please join us as John, Tysto, and myself examine some of the finer points of Gattaca. Some of our discussions include -- its relevance in today's world, (was it perhaps ahead of its time?) the philosophical debate of free will versus determinism, it's place in the realm of mystery noir as well as retro sci-fi, it's wonderful score and set design, and my admiration of Ethan Hawke.
