Simply one of the best films ever made. Ethan Hawke is amazing as usual.
>>
>>64588688
this was before he started taking it up the rectum hey?

OP here. Pretty sure it was something like
V "Where are you going?"
E "On a trip"
Then sadness and despair ensues.

Was that it or was it something else?

I have a great deal of admiration for this thoughtful sci-fi flick. The de-gene-erate Vincent originally worked as a janitor. But against such great odds; contrary to the beliefs held by all those he knew and loved that he would never amount to anything of worth, he fooled them all into thinking he was a valid, elite, genetically superior member of society.

Of course, what makes Vincent’s feat such a remarkable one is that we as viewers understand that those who end up working in menial, janitorial positions, are generally mental and physical degenerates with little purpose in life; quietly and sullenly going about their empty days cleaning up after others; lacking the intellect and the strength of will to change their fate; condemned to a life without meaning, without joy, without hope, without love.

Way to miss the whole point of the movie.

It's a cautionary tale about a dystopian future.
>>
>>64589320
>literally every time i make this post, within 5 minutes there are various responces, always similarly worded, about how i missed the point of the movie, or how wrong i am.

seriously jani, you need to fucking kill yourself. you are literally a disgrace to your family, and furthermore, to the entirety of human existence.

Friendly reminder that Rand Paul plagiarized the Wikipedia article for Gattaca:

Maybe because you did, it's hardly as simplistic as that nor is that even a point in the movie.

please continue janicuck, it's fucking hilarious

This is a great flick

I feel it would have worked better if they hadn't picked one of the few careers where health and genetic testing makes sense. Of course NASA only wants to send healthy people to space, if they die they just wasted billions.
It should have been a career where it shouldn't matter, in order to showcase how stupid the discrimation is.

>>64589533
At least he writes his own speeches unlike libshits
>>
>>64590920
anon i'm also watching this but why did you post it in this thread
>>
>>64590492
No politician writes their own speeches, it's a bipartisan thing
>>
>>64590458
My English is terrible, sorry.

The outer space is an environment where mankind shouldn't be, because we can't naturally survive there. Vincent destination, Titan, isn't friendly either.
Vincent should have died like 5 years before he joined Gattaca, but he lived, against all odds. Gattaca was to Vincent what the outer space is to mankind.

>>64590944
Could have sworn I was in the thread. At least glad to see someone else likes this great movie.
>>
holding your dick with your non dominant hand isn't weird right?
>>
>>64590458
This. Even in today's non-genetic ubermensh super-babies world, they wouldn't let someone with a heart condition that can kill you at any moment on a spaceship.
I get the "follow your dreams" message, but surely he could have a different dream. Like he wanted to join the Army, or be a firefighter or something

good underrated movie

any other films with a similar futurist aesthetic?

>>64588061

You should try WATCHING THE FUCKING MOVIE YOU GOD DAMN IDIOT!

>>64591578
Blade Runner

Not at all alike

this

>>64591127
Gattaca without space motifs? No thanks.

>>64591578
Blade Runner
Brazil
Children of Men
Dark City (sort of)
>>
>>64591652
>>64591762
I mean the look of the film. Gattaca is clearly heavily influenced by 1920's/30's futurism
>>
>>64591848
Another anon here. I got you, senpai.
There is a movie called "In Time" and it's shit, but has the same aesthetic.
>>
>>64591848
So? Blade Runner and all of the movies I've mentioned (except Children of Men) also follow a somewhat retro-futuristic aesthetic, it is as close as you can get to it.
>>
>>64591963
I feel the same. The world was built pretty well but everything else is pretty campy. Still pretty watchable t.b.q.h.
>>
>>64591522
Thanks friend
