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.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
Reminiscent of E.T. spying through the kitchen window on Elliott's mom, except E.T.'s vision doesn't work the same as ours; he's got the multifaceted compound eye of an insect; and he's a violent menace to humanity. As E.T.'s rage peaks, his vision disintegrates into seizure-inducing strobe effects. The woman or women (?) in the film get swallowed into a white light, which might be a tractor beam, for further study.
