Downsizing Presents Us With a Strange Merger of Awe and Humor, and Somehow Pulls It Off.

Have you ever seen a film that felt like it was being pulled in two, vastly different directions? While watching the movie Downsizing starring Matt Damon and Kristen Wig, there were moments when I found myself hypnotized by the film's forward-thinking humanitarian grandeur.
