Critic Reviews for Ad Astra
For most of its running time, Ad Astra amounts to a rather somber and sterile two-hour orbit.
This is slow, obtuse filmmaking with little emotional connection.
In a mesmerizing, minimalist performance, Pitt forms the gravitational center of a film that takes its place in the firmament of science fiction films by fearlessly quoting classics of the genre (as well as those outside it).
To lavish too much praise on Mr. Pitt's performance would be to somehow suggest he isn't already among the best actors on screen. He is.
The film's geography takes us on a cross-solar system journey but the real trajectory is deep into the human experience - finding meaning in life and coming to grips with being left behind.
