Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

2004, Filmauro et al

One would think, given the considerable talents of Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie, first-time director Kerry Conran would be in safe hands. But his overly-ambitious, highly-creative efforts went under-appreciated at the box office. Though deeply flawed, his daring project still makes a fascinating study for fans of retro sci-fi/adventure fare and/or totally synthetic filmmaking. That his actors never stepped foot on anything other than a green screen demonstrates their faith in his vision, which critics and cult fans have recognized as worthy of attention.
