Questionable Taste Theatre: “Gattaca”
For Questionable Taste Theatre this week, I present a movie that had only two things wrong with it: GATTACA. (Those two things are Ethan Hawke. He’s so bad I counted him twice.) Nutshell: In the near future, when genetic modification of embryos is standard, Ethan Hawke is born as a lumbering “god-child” with no job prospects.…
