I watch films because they let me understand the complexities of life.
I doubt anything can topped that incredible opening sequence for this year. It was the perfect way to set the tone for the entirety of a film. I was so close to putting Athena as one of my favorites films for this year... until that final scene. Then, I felt angry, disappointed, and betrayed. All of its potential to be great was somehow flushed down into an abyss.
If only this film had the balls to fully commit to its political stance, then this would have been an impactful and stronger film.
