josh lewis’s review published on Letterboxd:
one of the medium's foremost masters of screen space has a panic attack, a full-blown psychotic breakdown when confronted with the post-9/11 horror and confusion and paranoia that comes with the realization that our space no longer feels safe. some of the straight up cleanest and scariest monster/disaster suspense sequences ever put to film. watched this on the new 4K blu-ray and felt like i was seeing a number of its gruesome images i've never been able to get out of my head for the first time again; the stylish shadows, light blooms, muted colors and grain textures all look incredible and only serve to heighten the ground-scale vaporizing, rivers of corpses and fertilized roots of human blood. someone should scare the shit out of spielberg again so we can get more movies like this and Munich.
