Skyfall: The IMAX Experience

Rated PG-13 143 min. 2012



Skyfall is steeped in a nostalgia for cinema's most enduring series. Whereas Casino Royale was a reboot of the Bond franchise, this represents its restoration. Opening with a mistaken demise that harks back to You Only Live Twice, death and rebirth are the film's overarching themes. Bond (Daniel Craig), a neurotic who word-associates "murder" with "employment" and "woman" with "provocatrix," uses pills and drink to self-medicate demons dating back to some unresolved childhood trauma. In its eagerness for homage, Skyfall makes a bigger jumble of the Bond timeline (particularly a film-ending reveal). However, chronological purity goes out the window once you accept a protagonist who never ages, even over 50 years.
