Annihilation ★★★★½

Due to sheer terror during my first viewing, I didn’t get a chance to sing my praises about the fantastic women who carried the film.

Tessa Thompson’s performance was effortlessly organic; Jennifer Jason Leigh’s stoicism lit up the screen all the way through; fans of Gina will find her jaw-dropping, and Tuva’s gentle demeanour in this hellish paradise had me by the throat.

As for Natalie Portman: there’s no one from this planet who could replicate the emotions she displayed and evoked.
