Ad Astra Reviews

September 14, 2019
"Ad Astra" is Gray's most formidable paradox to date, liable to leave you awed, confused, and sad.

[Brad Pitt] blurs the line between fear and precision so easily that it's a haunting experience.

Gravity, Interstellar or even First Man this is not, despite the contributions of cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema and composer Max Richter.

Somber, stirring, ridiculous and just shy of sublime.
August 30, 2019
One of the most ruminative, withdrawn, and curiously optimistic space odysseys this side of "Solaris."

Ad Astra works, not least because nearly every minute of it is gorgeous to look at.

Ad Astra is enjoyable as a two-fisted action movie and as a hard sci-fi rumination. But, weighed down as it is by emotional baggage, it doesn't quite get to the stars.

It's often thrilling, occasionally improbable, sometimes confounding, but like its director, 'Ad Astra' is never bound by the gravitational pull of the ordinary.

The question of whether Pitt will be pitted against Pitt at the 2020 Oscars is not at all a stupid one.

Pitt is working the minor keys to sublime effect ... But while less is more for the actor, that's not necessarily the case for the movie.

It's an extraordinary picture, steely and unbending and assembled with an unmistakable air of wild-eyed zealotry.

The movie, for what it is, isn't a cheat. At heart, it's a short story set in space, decorated with major FX (the double rings of the evanescent blue Neptune are its most memorable image), held together by Pitt's stalwart presence.
