A mix of artful and pleasantly awful.
13 July 2019 | by k-kennedy-spaienSee all my reviews

Great cinematography, and the special effects that DON'T show spacecraft or the "alien lifeform" are quite good. Striking use of light and shadow, especially in the early scenes.

There's cheesy space ship miniatures, and a few nonsensical plot points. Also apparently many newspapers printed in foreign languages feature English headlines (Who knew?).

It works both on a "so-bad-it's-good" and a serious film level, though better at the former than the latter. If you want to get the most out of this film's serious side, just remember that "the past is a foreign country." as they say.
