Children of Men review

I've been looking forward to this film in a vague sort of way, ever since I saw a trailer for it over the summer (attached to Miami Vice, of all things, iirc). I didn't keep up with all the news or anything (I didn't even recall that it was directed and co-written by Alfonso Cuaron until I saw his name in the credits), but I knew I would try to see it in the theatre, because the style looked good and the premise is fascinating:

What would happen in the world, if the human race suddenly became infertile? Completely?

What would it look like, be like, 20 years later?

Go. See it. whitemartyr, you told me how you were studying thrillers? Yeah. Go see this one--talk about upping the stakes every ten minutes (or less).
