Seeing and Believing 189: Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel and Shawn Snyder’s To Dust
It’s been a while since Blade Runner 2049 came out, so we were about due for another movie about a futuristic dystopia filled with robots and cyborgs. Robert Rodriguez’s and James Cameron’s latest film, the adaptation of Yukito Kishiro’s Alita: Battle Angel manga, certainly fits the bill. Having satisfied that need, we turn our attention to Shawn Snyder’s tragicomedy about the messy mechanics of mortality, To Dust, starring Matthew Broderick and Geza Rohrig.
