Annihilation ★★★½

it didn’t exactly meet my expectations and there were moments where the pacing felt stretched out and it has the potential to dive deeper into the story because there are so much we don’t know  about and it adds up to the confusion but it could be garland’s intention to leave unsolved answers since diving into the mystery and unknown seems to be his style we’ll never really know for sure. on a more positive note, this was nevertheless still visually stunning and garland is one of the few directors that knows how to play with the picturesque shots and colorful landscapes and the mutated creatures honestly terrified me (e.g the bear scene) the stellar cast (the biggest highlight is jennifer jason leigh and this review) makes it so captivating and beguiling.
