A playground for movie lovers

60 notes


“The time I want to talk about begins with a man recording bitter thoughts about humanity as he floats through space toward another world, and with a group of primates touching a black monolith. Both actions send individuals on journeys previously beyond their imagination.”

Keith Phipps begins his look at The Laser Age—the rich era of science-fiction filmmaking that began in the late 1960s—with an examination of two films that use the future to comment on the present.
