Jennifer Jason Leigh sidelines bad dialogue with her usual twitchy brilliance. Her presence as the head scientist also telegraphs doom. . . . Mutations in the Zone-like Shimmer are “corruptions of form, duplicates of form” in this B movie of overexplanation that copies 2001: A Space Odyssey, Stalker, and Solaris, all filtered through the yarn-bombed landscape of Fraggle Rock.

What makes it exhilarating as sci-fi is that, like Arrival, it’s not about scientific knowledge as a unified system, but about the differences embedded within the sciences, in this case, between biology and psychology. The script, on the other hand, isn’t nearly as methodical and didactic as Arrival’s, which means that you’ll have to parse these differences by meddling through a propulsive yet opaque narrative arc.

Let’s say that Annihilation is a film I enjoyed enough to be disappointed. (Ditto Ex Machina, which I think is a better movie than this one.). . . . Garland learned at least part of a very important lesson from the movie’s most obvious influence (noted in every review): the Soviet director Andrei Tarkovsky. . . . But Garland’s parting shot is more of a straightforward horror-movie mindfuck, rather than one of the master’s cosmic ironies or paradoxes.
