- Gattaca (1997)
GUANINE—ADENINE—THYMINE—CYTOSINE. The four amino acids that make up deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA, the stuff that we are made of, to paraphrase Sam Spade. They are also the letters that make up the title of Andrew Niccol’s frighteningly prophetic film. Ten years after its release, the events of Gattaca ring truer than ever before. Except for the cool electric Studebaker Avantis—daggone it.
