Alfonso Cuarón is ready to move on from "Gravity." Four years of work on his space odyssey including preparation, digital pre-visualization, barrier-breaking technological advances and on-set innovation to achieve what is easily the most realistic depiction of space on film to date have taken their toll on the director and he's ready to pursue the next thing.
"I'm more than eager," Cuarón says. "I need it. It took so long that I have already processed the film. Even if I finished the last details before Venice, the whole film for me was very old news."
It speaks to Cuarón's philosophy as a filmmaker. For him, the joy of a movie is the experience of the work. The "aftertaste," as he calls it, is what he takes away. He watches his films once with an audience and he moves on quickly to the next thing. And that, by the way, is how "Gravity" started clicking to life.
