Matt Damon’s Shirt “Paul Safranek in Downsizing”

Paul Safranek in Downsizing

Paul Safranek in Downsizing, which also in part a social satire of its own genre, Downsizing follows a couple who believes their lives would be better if they were to shrink themselves and be transferred to a new world called Leisureland. This place exists to conserve the Earth and save the environment, by these shrunken people needed much less resources. With multiple meanings to the title, this is a concept that sounds incredible on paper, but doesn’t exactly translate into that great of a movie.

Throughout the first act, you are immersed in this world and couldn’t wait to be taken on its journey, but find losing interest when political and religious elements began to takeover. This is a movie that could’ve done so much more with its premise.

As soon as you’re brought into this other world that has been built for those who shrunk themselves over the years, you will find yourself kind of transfixed at how interesting the visuals are and how well the comedic aspects come into play, but what you don’t expect is for the film to take a dramatic turn and really have you thinking hard about the world we live in and whether or not certain lines of dialogue are true about society in general. This is an eye-opening film in that regard and the third act is incredibly ambitious, but I just don’t think really sticks the landing that it strives to achieve.

In the end, this is one of the most original ideas I can recall in recent memory, but an idea doesn’t make a film great. It’s the film itself that needs to win you over as a whole, and Downsizing just didn’t do that for me. On many accounts, this is a very impressive movie from a technical standpoint and it takes risks that I didn’t expect it it, but the risks it takes will only work for a few audiences members that can relate to it.

Paul Safranek in Downsizing is a movie that promises a lot and tries to deliver on all of those promises, while also shoving in side plots that make this film too emotionally complex to really be invested in the satirical aspects by the end. I wish this film went through a few more rewrites, because there is a satirical masterpiece of a movie in here somewhere, but it’s just not the product that you’ll be seeing in theatres soon. Downsizing is worth your time in terms of originality, but I wouldn’t get your hopes up on it being a favourite of yours.
