Somewhat Relevant – All That We Destroy

All That We Destroy

There’s a genre of movie that I like that isn’t necessarily good, but leaves room to breathe & wonder & become immersed in their worlds.  The original Mad Max & Phantasm fit in this category as does Return of the Living Dead Part 3, all of which I would say are good movies though I get the argument that they aren’t.  I’d put All That We Destroy in the same class.  Not really sci-fi or horror or thriller or family dram or slice of life, but with elements of all of those, it’s the story of a brilliant geneticist who has developed illegal cloning technology & is trying to use it to help her son learn how not to kill people.  I’d say the acting leaves something to be desired, except I think they are playing the parts of people meant to be unlikeable & annoying.  This is the first movie I’ve intentionally watched twice in years.  Not for fans of blockbusters, but about perfect for me in a way I can’t articulate.
