The untold origin story behind Ridley Scott's Alien - rooted in Greek and Egyptian mythologies, underground comics, the art of Francis Bacon, and the dark visions of Dan O'Bannon and H.R. Giger. A contemplation on the symbiotic collaborative process of movie-making, the power of myth, and our collective unconscious.Written by
Well, the only GOOD news is, hopefully one day someone will take the helm and do a truly comprehensive documentary about "Alien". This is NOT it. "Alien" certainly deserves it. While this documentary may include some existential and interesting contributions not before stated it certainly lacks in giving credit where credit is due. Alien is an artistic endeavor and unfortunately leaves out a whole lot of artists involved. Where was Ron Cobb (set design) and Mobius (costume, and ship design). Oh, no. Those were all RIDLEY's ideas (according to the documentary). And what about POST PRODUCTION? Ben Burtt is mentioned ONCE and NO mention at all about music and this is what really amazed me, NO MENTION about editorial. If you are a true "Alien" fan then you will have heard MOST of what is in this already. Give it a pass and hope for somebody later to pick up and carry the torch.
