Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow

3

A decade-long labour-of-love for writer-director Kerry Conran, who began working on this heroic homage to Flash Gordon, film noir, '30s screwball and monster movies in his small LA apartment on an Apple Mac II. Many millions later, the resultant film is a geeks' delight that illustrates the huge potential of bluescreen filmmaking coupled with CGI characters and backgrounds. Sky Captain is destined for endless plays on DVD, making this arguably the most perfect match of film and format so far. And if the movie lacks a certain soul, its flair cannot be faulted.
