Hi! Guys Im, Eric Voss And The Movie
Annihilation presented some of the most perplexing science fiction concepts We’ve seen in recent years, directed by Alex Garland, who made the amazing film ex Machina In 2014. Annihilation stars Natalie Portman as a biologist joining a female exhibition that’s totally not the new Ghostbusters exploring a mysterious meteor crash zone filled with trippy psychedelic mutations. Now you may have walked out of smoothie. A little confused and that’s okay it happens to all of us. It doesn’t mean we’re dumb dumbs.
Even Though The Studio Worried We Might
be it just means. This film did its job do challenge our minds and keep the conversation over what the f we just saw going on and on the ride home all the way to UK for answers where hey welcome I’m here to help I got those answers so I’m gonna explain. annihilations, ending what it all means all the big questions So spoilers ahead, Ok! Let’s start with the first question What is the shimmer exactly so the shimmer is the name given to the expanding region affected by this meteor, which crashed into a lighthouse on Florida’s Panhandle mutating everything in the swamp to look like an acid trip, which is funny because as someone who grew up in Florida that’s exactly how it looks normally. The shimmer is most likely some kind of extraterrestrial organism, a whole new kind of alien attack that’s driven more by its biological life cycle than any interplanetary conquest, which is really more of a cliche sci-fi agenda that just comes from our own assumptions about alien species. In this movie, Tessa Thompson’s physicist Character Erratic describes the shimmer as a prism that refracts light and radio waves, but also reflects the UK of.
And Animals Within It That Refraction
is what causes everything to mutate the way it does? The Gators have second rows of teeth like sharks. This bear monster that absorbs the final emotions of its prey plants that grow in the shape of human beings intestines that slither around like snakes and if you watched closely. This film sneakily foreshadowed. This refraction idea early on when Lena and Kane’s hands are seen refracted through a drinking glass, but there’s a basic biological function that serves as really an extended metaphor for the shimmer that the film gives us as a sort of road map which brings us to our next question. What does the shimmer represent.
There Are Several Ways To Interpret This Film,
but one analogy that the film will give is cancer. In the opening scenes. Lina introduces us to the idea of cellular biology and a lecture. tour students on cervical cancer the cancer motif comes back repeatedly. Lina compares a crossbred flower plant to cell mutations of cancer in the human body and later Dr.
Ventress Reveals Her Cancer Diagnosis, Which Is
really her personal motivation for entering the Shimer looking at the shimmer as a growing tumor on the Earth’s surface makes this film a lot easier to digest. The various doppelgangers operate like cancer cells which duplicate and eventually annihilate the original cell and the repeated expeditions of soldiers and scientists being thrown into the shimmer could represent the various failed treatment methods. The medical community has attempted to control different forms of cancer over the years. There are even some emotional parallels. Radek reflects on how horrible it was for Shepherd to die screaming perhaps a nod to the debate among some cancer patients over the value of trying to fight prolonged battles.
Against It I Mean Really If You Think
about this? You could argue. Some extraterrestrial race concluded that the most destructive weapon against Earth both biologically and psychologically is a form of ecological cancer, but to say this film is just about cancer is really two surface levels, so what is annihilations deeper, meaning well as Ventris tells us midway through the movie, it’s really all about self–destruction yes biologically speaking cancer is a form of self–destruction. Lina explains how cancer cells annihilate other healthy cells, but just as the coding for their own self–destruction is embedded in cells stemming back to the original one celled organism on Earth. This movie extrapolates that idea to people as well suggesting our own behavioral self–destruction is inevitable. Radek cuts herself.

Lorenson Is An Addict Shepherd Is Broken
over losing her daughter and Lina destroyed her own happy marriage by cheating on Cain. tendencies notice how the moment they cross into the shimmer. Lina flashes back to the night she cheated on her husband and later the house they encounter is a version of Lina and Cain’s house the shimmer is reflecting Lina’s own guilt and memories back to her now. Lina’s mistake grows as a metaphoric cancer until it consumes her marriage reflected in her physical struggles, which leads us to the next big question what the hell happened in the lighthouse so after Lina learns that the cane she saw earlier was her husband’s mutant Doppelganger. There’s this crazy scene in the cavern below with Ventress, allowing the refraction to transform her body.
Then A Drop Of Lenas Blood
mixes in resulting in this metallic looking form that mirrors Lena’s movements. This is a metaphor for Lena’s battle with the version of herself that she is transformed into after her failed. marriage her only Escape is to destroy one version of herself by burning it up with another phosphorus Grenade, which seems to sear all of the mutant out gross to the shimmer to return to that cancer metaphor. This could be compared to surgical removal of a tumor a drastic destructive option that doesn’t always remove all the traces of the cancer, which leads us to the mystery of the movies ending is Lena, a clone was the version of Lena that escaped the lighthouse and the shimmer getting interrogated by Benedict Wong. Throughout the movie Lena‘s original self or her Doppelganger.
Now It Looked As Though It
was the doppelganger that got burned up, but the film’s final image leaves. The question open-ended with a close-up of her eyes glowing. Hey kind of like the end of Michael Jackson Thriller actually if you go back and scrutinize his film. Frame, There are other clues snuck in there that hint Lena’s post Shimmer self is the mutation Remember She suffered a concussion when the Doppelganger attacked her in a lighthouse and the switcheroo definitely could have happened during that blackout. Also during the interrogation, you can see the water on Lena’s glass mutating, but ultimately this ambiguity is the point Alex Garland’s original ending was planned to be even more ambiguous.
An Earlier Script Draft Didnt Even
show which Lena made it out of the lighthouse by the way that alternate end being closed with a meteor shower showing even more of these shimmer radiations, making their way to Earth’s surface. In that final version, Lena’s blood was infected by the shimmer. The moment she walked into it either way interrogation. Lena could have been lying about the events as we saw them from her perspective and either way. The versions of Lena and Kaine at the end of the movie are completely different people from the ones we saw at the beginning for a movie about self–destruction in all its forms.
Its Fitting To End On A Marriage That
has been annihilated by its own toxic mutant form, but what if thrown over to you guys do you guys think the Shimmer meteor was meant as a weapon by other alien race maybe to mutate earth to terraform it so that they can move in or do you see the shimmer as the alien species itself and it just like hops from planet to planet like some kind of viral infection comment with your thoughts down below and tweet me directly I Da boss and probably new Rockstars on Twitter.
