An extremely original documentary
5 March 2003 | by (Kortrijk, Belgium) – See all my reviews

As I began to watch this film, I did not know what it was about.

The further this documentary proceeded however, the further my mouth fell open ! During this documentary, I kept thinking :"Why didn't I know about this? Why hadn't I, a big Kubrick and space-fan, never heard of this before?". I watched it almost the same way I would watch the landing of a flying saucer.

I will not reveal any "plot"-details, but this one thing I can tell : before you watch : try not to know what it is about. Let yourself be carried away and watch it until the very end (and do not forget the end titles!)

Without any doubt 10 out of 10.
