Hee, hee. Jack Carpenter daring to remove it looks like a movie, I decided to take the audience's bastions of original and unusual. Because find another reason, according to which he chose this script, I can not find. And the kid's good, took and took, perhaps, the most original space fantasy of the last few years. And certainly the best space fiction in this year (Yes, Interstellar Nolan still not out, but the unlikely it would be so odious as the movie).
Adorable Jessica Marlowe arrives on the space station "omega 76" populated by well very odious personalities. To what you there used? To the heroes of space movies that disciplined, snobbish and always ready to conquer the depths of space? Or characters-geeks who are also ready to conquer the Universe with pathos 90 level? Yeah, bummer. Here we captain suicident, which does not to end of him (prevents him onboard computer). And he suffers because have to hide their homosexuality. And also from what needs you to pretend to be a friend of the entire crew.
On-Board mechanic, with outdated mechanical arm which is in rhododendrum secretly grows marijuana. Or his wife, 100% blonde, manipulative, mentally ill, so sitting on as a sedative Dr. house on vicodin, gives them this child from husband regularly visits a robot-therapist. And their child feels no one needs to all over the ship. And this is just the surface characteristics. And you understand, the arrival of a very correct and disciplined Jessica just adds to the atmosphere on the station.
The carpenter cut off from the usual understanding of space fiction. No galactic empires, Alien slobbering, pathetic battles in space other things. Instead, personal cockroaches and the complexes of the crew and poisonous almost hostile atmosphere inside the ship. And then waited, blasters? Replacement worse, the Director took an ordinary American life of some provincial town of the U.S. 70s to the space stylized as space movies of the 60-70-ies with a demonstration of a purely earthly problems. Housewives, tired of the monotonous life, children providing for themselves because their mother spends time on the intrigue, gossip and the betrayal of a husband for the thrill. Neighbor, who can afford to live better than cause tons of envy for the eyes.
Personal complexes, which have to stifle whiskey and jam a sedative. Pettiness, envy, intrigue, Skoki, but apparently all friendly and wonderful. These problems must not be solved either in what time. But Director convert the film in snotty melodrama or heavy drama. This is a Comedy the subtle humor and irony which, of course, comes as a positive bonus. The moral of the film is expressed exactly and simply in the end of the film — Society absorbed in petty strife, selfishness, intrigues destroy himself yourself. Or rather just missed external danger, as it will be busy showdown. However, the Director gives optimistic advice, look in itself and look at their lives. Maybe you first have to change something in yourself? Asteroids don't always inclined to give it another shot.
