The Times Regrets the Error

I saw Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity” this past weekend along with the rest of New York City it seemed if the crowd and buzz in the theater was any indication. I enjoyed it, but I didn’t find it quite the cinematic tour de force that everyone else is proclaiming. Some critics have referred to the film’s conveyance of a sensation referred to as “overview effect” that astronauts sometimes experience. The film does have its breathtaking moments. One particular scene had me gasp, but in the end I thought “Gravity” sank under its own weight and is simply just an entertaining disaster flick. In terms of the director’s body of work, I thought “Y Tu Mamá También” was far more impressive .

Speaking of space, following the successful launch of the Apollo 11 mission in the summer of 1969, the New York Times published a correction (see above) in its July 17, 1969 edition.
