Connor Foster’s review published on Letterboxd:
I dont know why I’m so drawn to movies about self-destruction, but year after year these are the stories that stick with me.
Ad Astra will definitely alienate some viewers with its slightly obvious themes and unambiguous moral stance, but the world is just too cynical a place for me not to go for this kind of thing. Everyday it feels like I watch people willingly walking towards black holes with the attitude of “Welp, theres nothing left for me here!”.
Hold hands with James Gray and take a stroll down Optimism Lane. Trust me, you could use it.
