Annihilation and its Cosmic Framing
I’ve been a fan of Alex Garland’s since Ex Machina came out and was even more excited about the director’s work with Annihilation. Though I haven’t seen it, most agree that Men is a bit of a disappointment considering how great Ex Machina and Annihilation were.
Nevertheless, this video from Spikima Movies discusses Annihilation’s cosmic framing and why the film is so creepy and unpleasant, yet beautiful and elegant? It addresses the notion of why it feels so alien. The film’s cosmic off-ness and one-shot composition (a frame within a frame shot) are primarily why. Check it out!
