John Carpenter United States, 1974

josé neves's rating of the film Dark Star

Fun but too puerile. Obviously the "2001" ironic revision - the talk about phenomenology with the computer, which clearly exposes the mentioned movie's presumption - and the surfing towards death, are moments of great imagination but, in general, has become a film that, though indicative of some of Carpenter's later paths, "aged" badly.
