Strange Lands: International Sci-Fi, the week-long series opening today at New York's Film Society of Lincoln Center, "is an artfully eclectic journey across psychic terrain as well as geopolitical boundaries," finds the Kristin M. Jones in the Wall Street Journal. In the New York Times, Eric Hynes notes that the series "runs the gamut from space-age sex farce to dystopian nightmare and travels to such lost worlds as Czechoslovakia and the Soviet Union." We've gathered previews of Gottfried Kolditz’s In the Dust of Stars (1976), Herrmann Zscoche’s Eolomea (1972), Aleksandr Sokurov's Days of Eclipse (1988), Karel Zeman's The Fabulous World of Jules Verne (1958) and more. » - David Hudson »
