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
I want to go back to the old freezerinos after seeing this documentary
Imagine the horror of a feminist dissection of the movie in which one of the speakers condescendingly infers that the creators of the movie were actually making a subconscious statement about oppressive patriarchal society without even knowing!
Imagine the audacity it takes to say that artist like Scott, O'Bannon and Giger were actually unaware of their own creative process and subconsciously succumbed to their male guilt.
The decision that this angle is relevant to this movie was wrong and it made the documentary naive, shallow and obtuse. No wonder Ridley Scott wanted nothing to do with it.
Shame really, I liked the bit about Francis Bacon.
