John Carpenter United States, 1974

Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film Dark Star

Interesting and offbeat early effort from Carpenter. The bargain-basement special effects and production values somehow only add to its scrappy charms and loopy atmosphere. But working against it is a slow pace and a number of sequences that drag on too long. Maybe not quite consistent enough to be a cult classic, but a fun little movie.
