Sunshine

Danny Boyle obviously has a highly developed visual sense. Even in smaller-scale movies like Millions, his visuals are clear and arresting. Couple this superb visionary ability with great storytelling and you get the best action movie of the summer, which is easily Sunshine.

The film stars Michelle Yeoh, Cillian Murphy, Chris Evans, Troy Garity, Hiroyuki Sanada, Rose Byrne and Cliff Curtis. The performances are great, but what is really awesome about this movie is how it looks. It's a total nail-biting thriller, and I both held my breath and cried at least three times apiece during the movie. But it's just so stunning to look at!

Go. I'm going to go again. If you can see it at the Arclight, go see it at the Arclight. It's definitely this year's The Fountain.
