Dark Star

Geregisseerd door John Carpenter
Verenigde Staten, 1974
Komedie, Science-fiction, Thriller


The misadventures of a deep space wrecking crew. Charged with an endless mission to destroy unstable planets—and long since worn down by routine, isolation, faulty equipment, and each other—they’re slowly pushed to the edge in this offbeat, low-budget response to 2001.

1976 | Genomineerde: Best Dramatic Presentation

The whole thing is ridiculous and low-rent, but you can see some of the odd charms of both its makers. Carpenter would parlay the economic filmmaking shown here into a spate of atmospheric classics, while O’Bannon would rework the premise of a working-class ship dealing with an extraterrestrial for his script for Alien.

The extra footage is essential to giving Dark Star its scrappy, lived-in feeling, setting it apart from just about every other sci-fi film.

Thought this was a total bust for a while, but it gets funnier as it goes along, culminating in a glorious finale (“teach it phenomenology”) that anticipates Douglas Adams at his loopiest. Still, it’s plainly a student short that’s been padded out to feature length, and there’s virtually no sign of the compositional magnificence Carpenter would demonstrate in Assault on Precinct 13 just two years later.
