Pleasing lack of visual noise

I liked how the movie didn't scream at me, trying to deafen me with whatever kind of message the actors and director wanted to convey... I had to work a little bit to see what there was to be seen - which I like, and I found the lack of CGI and laser guns thoroughly refreshing. The pace was right, and the music fit the mood of the movie.

The movie as a whole has a distinct human quality like I used to enjoy in those 50's sci-fi stories the way Philip K. Dick could write them. The same atmosphere that's usually gone in Dick's flashy Hollywood rewrites.

The intercultural lingo is a lot of fun to listen to, it's not too tacky and not too overdone, it sounds almost natural to me.

All in all a good 8 out of 10 stars from me. If there was more of a puzzle to be solved throughout the film (it does have you wonder where things are going in the beginning) I would have probably rated it even higher, because I like my stories a little mysterious and not too straightforward. I can imagine that some people find the acting slightly too bland for their tastes, but I feel it's far better to err on the side of caution than to produce another vehicle for overacting and improbable characters.

Innovative and subtle

Code 46: Innovative and subtle In Code 46 Michael Winterbottom continues to confound and mystify audiences in this bizarre sci-fi romance set in the not too distant future. What's most commendable about the film is its social critique, which is a subtle yet poignant criticism of the so-called freedoms of a free market capitalist society. As with 9 Songs this is a film with an acerbic social commentary reflective possibly of Winterbottoms Marxist or anti-establishment leanings.

Code 46 is set in a world in which nation states have been replaced by a central administration known as the 'Sphinx'. As with Gattaca or Clockwork Orange this film is based on a timeless paranoia of big government and its impact on social liberties. Other compelling analogies suggest this is a reference to the curtailing of personal freedoms in the 'War against Terror', whilst others recall the strong resonance between Code 46 and the indifference of the west to the plight of refugees. Nevertheless this author felt that the central premise of Code 46 was something other than this. The film essentially deals with the paradoxical nature of freedom and choice. The fictitious society in which it is set is not, as some people have called it, a 'post-apocalyptic' one, rather a parallel or distant version of our own reality in which the rampant commodification of human genes has created the necessity to impinge upon some basic and intrinsic individual freedoms. Code 46 was a savage onslaught against the ideological premise of economic rationalism and the cult of individualism so endemic in contemporary society. In an age where democracy and freedom have been substituted for free markets, consumer choice and rampant materialism Winterbottom throws it back in our faces and asks: is this what you really want? The parallels between this and his other work 9 Songs (which incidentally was made after 46) is unmistakable. Yet Code 46 is a far more exceptional film in that it carries a more readily accessible didactic about modern life. Even so 9 Songs and 46 are unrepentantly abstract, contrived and provocative, both in terms of the moving picture medium and also its dissident social commentary; though the latter is often underrepresented in critical assessments of Winterbottom's work. Equally, he is a brazen romanticist whose work is unapologetically sentimental and yet so cynical, 'edgy' and aloof at the same time (i.e. the recurring duality of innocence versus guilt, gratification versus selflessness etc.).

Code 46 is a sensitive and beautifully subtle film, but it suffered (in part) from some callous editing which served to undermined its overall constitution. First and foremost the length of the film should be shortened by a good ten to twenty minutes (the DVD release has in fact reduced it by almost 5 minutes). Novelty turns to boredom as the plot begins to loiter unnecessarily towards the latter stages. Nevertheless this 'placidity' is perhaps what fans of Winterbottom have come to expect and appreciate about his style of narration. And whilst there is an understated, refreshing quality about the slowness, its far too *unconventional* for the pallet of most moviegoers. One other aspect the director will have to reconsider in future ventures is the dialogue (and this applies to both 46 and 9 songs). Fans may find the language 'real', 'unobtrusive' and 'unpretentious', but others will find it annoying and difficult to follow (those who have seen 9 Songs will most likely understand the nature of this criticism). There is an almost satirical naiveté about the way people express themselves (though in all fairness it's not the director that should be blamed for this but the scriptwriter). This author found the dialogue frigid and unrealistic and it was perhaps this intolerance that ultimately fissured into a general detachment from the story and its characters.

But despite this, there is a distinct possibility- based on his current works- that Michael Winterbottom will be remembered as one of the most innovative filmmakers of our time. It remains to be seen if this bold prediction materialises.

good science fiction

In the near future, Tim Robbins is sent to investigate a case of forged passports. This Orwellian government has strict control over everything. Unfortunately for Tim, he falls in love with a girl with whom he is not DNA-compatible, a violation of code 46.

Code 46 is derivative of course but ultimately it is fresh cinema, and there are several sub themes about science and morality to think about.

Most unique, i thought, was its vision of Shanghai where it seems only half the people are Asian, and everyone speaks English with just a few fundamental phrases from mandarin and Spanish. I am guessing that demographics and language are both controlled by the government. Incidentally, the classic book/movie Clockwork Orange showed a anarchistic world where English developed chaotically into a Russian mix as that was its geopolitical vision.

There are few great science fiction movies, i think this one is close to being great but in the end I think it lacked drama. But if you like science fiction, you will love this.
