Warren Spratley's rating of the film The Thing from Another World

****1/2 Definitely an amazing movie--I WANT to give it five-- but I must see it once more as I need to be more sure of the way politics, sex, and Hawks' subtle, touching genre subversions work within the overall narrative trajectory. I love how much Hawks dislikes authority. Touching, soft male camaraderie, deflation of masculinity, Patrick Henry and Nikki Nicholson's relationship. What are emotions? Intellect?
