Performances that are pitch-perfect from a stellar cast. The first dirty, grungie space vessel that I’d seen in a film – more gritty and real than anything that had ever been offered up before. A freighter – not a fighter or a star-destroyer or something glamorous. Just a working freighter.This movie is amazing and wonderful, I had a feeling that when I went into this movie I wouldn’t feel so scared. Because it came from 1979, but was I wrong. This movie was an amazing thriller and suspenseful film. It felt like I was really in space, but also all alone and running from something that I didn’t know. I felt like every moment was suspenseful as the last moment. That every thing led to another. This film matches my taste in art on every level. It is slow, elegant and perverse in a very intellectual way, and is also a movie which addresses the intelligent viewer: one who immerses himself into the detail of the design and script and, of course, who is expected to use his imagination throughout the viewing.
