Dark Star (1974)

I was reminded of John Carpenter's 1974 film Dark Star after recently seeing Jodorowsky's Dune, which highlighted how Alejandro Jodorowsky became aware of (and made him an integral part of his Dune production team) Dan O'Bannon after a chance viewing of Dark Star while on a visit to Los Angeles.

 For having a low budget, Dark Star makes excellent use of an inventive, well written script; and Dan O'Bannon's very creative, shoestring production design.


  1. Sweet. Enjoyed seeing this after all these years!

    1. Thanks Dave. This movie definitely has aged well.
