"Gravity features one of the most innovative and inventive sound mixes to make its way to theatres — one that breaks with modern movie convention in significant ways. It’s a film where space is actually silent, touch is the best way to hear, and dialogue whirls around the audience in an immersive 360-degree cyclone.” – Bryan Bishop, The Verge
