The retro-futuristic, dystopian wonder of window shopping

Never Let Me Go

Kazuo Ishiguro (The Remains of the Day) probably wrote a lovely book in Never Let Me Go. (I wouldn't know, I didn't read it. I, uh ... had laundry to do.) But the story seems impossible to translate into a film. Slow, contemplative and very talky, this non-sci-fi sc-fi story takes place in an English boarding school where the young students are kept mysteriously isolated. There's no great mystery as to what's going on (partially because the story is borrowed directly from the 1979 clinker The Clonus Horror and its 2005 rip-off The Island). Instead, we get a inert, schoolyard love triangle between Carey Muligan, Andrew Garfield and Keira Knighley, and an unsatisfying denouement. Music video director Mark Romanek has crafted an elegant melodrama--but one it's impossible to warm up to. FULL REVIEW: Overly restrained sci-fi experiment fails to create life by Devin D. O’Leary (10/7/2010). 103 minutes R.
