Plane and Infinity Pool – Movie Reviews

Plane and Infinity Pool , I had no interest or intention of watching Plane; it looked like a by-the-numbers action movie in every sense of the title. But, the unexplained cosmic powers had spontaneously tempted me into watching, and I fully admit that I did enjoy the film.

It was a major subversion of expectation. It has a very simple, tried and true premise where a commercial flight crash lands on a remote island controlled by blood-lusted rebels.

I was surprised to see the circumscribed tone of relative realism to Plane, seen with the portrayal of these characters and the execution of the action. The director, Jean-François Richet, invests a commendable level of detail when it came to the action and formulating character motivations.

At no point did I find this film to be excessive or silly, and the attentiveness to grounding the more suspenseful sequences of this film exponentially increased the tension.

Gerard Butler’s protagonist of Captain Brodie Torrence is one that is pretty easy to empathize with, and he does a pretty solid job in the role. The implementation of the ex-con Louis Gaspare made the film more interesting,

although I had wanted to see more from him by the end of the

My first film from legendary director David Cronenberg(‘s son) at least had what I expected from it. Twisted body horror, an unconventional progression of plot, and bizarre conceptual undertones become a principal magnet of appeal for Infinity Pool.

In those areas, Brandon Cronenberg does not disappoint as the literal prodigal son of one of the pioneers of body horror. Unexpectedly,

this movie is also pretty damn funny, too. It is about a writer and his wife, who travel to a resort in an enigmatic country, where they meet an alluring woman and discover a dark scientific breakthrough the locals have been exploiting.

The sci-fi aspects of Infinity Pool provide the framework for a pretty interesting narrative. Brandon Cronenberg administers detailed catharsis through many stomach-churning sequences of violence and sexual fantasy.

His visual prerogative of utilizing a sensual stream of camera movements through hallucinogenic montages are very well done, as he experiments with convincing practical effects layered by a tremendously impactful score.

The performances from Alexander Skarsgård and Mia Goth are pretty excellent, given that they suit the characters’ descents into hedonistic craving. As said earlier, this film also manages to be pretty funny, but does this in a way that prohibits tonal dissonance and doesn’t detract from the more suspenseful scenes.

The script of Infinity Pool is pretty pervasive in both concept and execution. It’s not perfect, however, and I feel that this narrative is delivered with an all-too-familiar backdrop. What loses me are some of the character justifications. While important to the thematic influence of the story, these characters lack much depth beyond that.

The conclusion to this film doesn’t signify anything ground breaking at a character level, although its essence within the narrative is present. This movie is lil’ Cronenberg’s second big feature in the fray, and for all intents and purposes, he proves his inherent talent beyond the namesake.

A new Netflix documentary about mathematics and the concept of infinity is causing people to question everything they know.

The documentary called A Trip to Infinity, which was released on the streaming platform in September, explores the concept of ‘infinity’ by using a series of complex theories about physics as well as maths, cosmology and philosophy.

The one-hour 19-minute film (thankfully it doesn’t go on for infinity) is broken down into chapters and ponders the question of whether we are capable of understanding infinity or whether it actually even exists.


Unlike regular pools which have all the walls extend beyond the water, an infinity pool has one or more walls that meet the water level exactly, with the water level wall sloping downwards away from the edge creating a waterfall
This includes vicious stabbings, bloody shootouts, and graphic decapitations. Definitely not for the faint of heart. A man punches another character for an extended period until the head of the character is a pulp.
