This week I started Children of Men. I will preface by chronicalling that I have seen the movie before. I almost forgot how this movie started. It almost caught me by surprise yet again. The explosion that starts off this movie sets off a theme that is unrelenting in its message and drives home the films impact on realizations about society and its downfalls but it also highlights the strength and resilience of humanity at the same time which feels really weird to write but I think that that is probably the message that they are trying to get across in the film: that those with this resilience will strive. This is also talked about with how the main character’s son died and how he just stopped caring because he thought that, in the end it all came down to bad luck.
