Film Colossus: Apt. 3D

In APT 3D, the sci-fi elements are the strange lights in the sky, the surveillance by the government, the strange figureless entities that impregnate Erin. All of this is cool, and sure, it’s interesting. But, like Inception, what’s even more fascinating is what those elements represent—what they defamiliarize. And, in APT 3D’s case, it’s defamiliarizing the things that drive couples apart, and how much work it takes to remain together.
