TIFF Talk 2015: Matt, "The Martian"
Name: Matt, Toronto
The Film: The Martian
What's it about?
Matt Damon gets left behind on Mars and has to science his way back home.
Did you like it?
I thought it was really good. It's very entertaining. It's surprisingly optimistic where it's a kind look at humanity and what we can do if we all work together. It's just fun. There's a lot of humour in it; which, you wouldn't expect -- given the dire circumstances in which Mr. Damon finds himself. I think that director Ridley Scott is getting more playful as he gets older. There's some stuff in the film that I would argue he wouldn't have tried 15 years ago. I think he's 80? It's great that this 80 year old man is this spry and willing to take chances.
Friday, September 18th at 6pm, Bell TIFF Lightbox 2, opens wide on October 2nd.
