ALIEN: Review

1 comment:

  1. Hey Tom,

    While your review expresses your enthusiasm and influence of Alien in terms of sci-fi conventions etc., it is noticeably 'unthematic' in its critique - and doesn't deal with 'production design' or the 'visual concept' aspects of the film itself. SO much has been written about this film - so much interesting, speculative stuff - I can't help feeling that you're not digging around enough or peeling back enough of the layers. When it comes to your written assignment for Unit 2, the ability to properly drill into the relationship between the way a film looks and the 'why' of it is your fundamental challenge. You need to read more - and think more - if you want to say something truly insightful.
