Synopsis

Outer Space is a shocker of cinematographic dysfunction; a hell-raiser of avant-garde cinema. It conjures up an inferno which pursues the destruction (of cinematic narrative and illusion) with unimaginable beauty.

Our take

A key film from the Austrian avant-garde, Outer Space re-appropriates footage from Sidney J. Furie’s The Entity into a maelstrom of images—a destruction of narrative norms, and an outright violation of traditional cinematic space.
