Gaia (2021)



Critic Consensus: If its narrative ambitions aren't always equaled by its chilling visuals, Gaia remains an effective slice of ecological horror.

A thought-provoking and disturbing experience.

Even when the story takes on biblical overtones, the melodrama never blossoms. And in terms of suspense, Gaia doesn't so much tighten the screws as endlessly turn them in the wrong direction.

Bouwer takes material that could have been laughable and makes it terrifying and intense.

As a feat of carefully imagined, economically realized world-building... "Gaia" compels to the end, making the most of the natural resources at its disposal while constructing its own dreamy, tactile visions.

After a while, the film's elaborate, often breathtaking special effects come to feel like it's only source of complexity.
