Gattaca revisited

Shannon and I watched Gattaca on DVD last night. We’d both seen it before, much closer to its 1997 release date, and enjoyed it enough to want to buy it and see it again. A second viewing, though, makes it seem a lot more prescient then it was back then. 9 years is a long time for a movie to stew. All the references to DNA profiling ring more true now that biometric passports, cloning and the testing of babies for gene defects are more of a reality. Very spooky, and it makes it an even better movie. 8/10
