Director: Alfonso Cuaron

NEXT time you think you're having a bad day at the office, imagine what the two astronauts played by Sandra Bullock and George Clooney had to go through in Alfonso Cuaron's claustrophobic thriller Gravity. The Mexican director keeps the pacing tight with the film clocking in at a brief 90 minutes and the action even tighter as the free floating camera work puts the audience in the centre of things. Visually, the film is a spectacle and for best effect, watch it in the giant Imax format to get the most out of the 3D. Like James Cameron's Avatar, Gravity is a groundbreaking film on the technical front but it also has a plot that hooks you from the first frame and doesn't let go until the breathtaking last.
