Dark Star: H.R. Giger's World

Rated NR 95 minutes 2015

Respectful profile of the late Swiss artist takes us into Giger’s intentionally gloomy, bric-a-brac-filled Zurich house in the last years of his life (1940-2014) for an in-depth look around. It also gives us a glimpse into the preoccupations of the man whose macabre, half-organic, half-machine creations – paintings, sculpture, creature design, etc. -- graced Ridley Scott’s Alien and thrilled generations of sci-fi fans and metal rockers. Once upon a time Giger’s work was undoubtedly shocking. The world caught up with him, but, as filmmaker Belinda Sallin shows us, he maintained his point of view, public and private, with all the steadfastness of a Walt Disney or a Hayao Miyazaki. Indispensable for Giger aficionados, worth seeing for pop-culture voyeurs in general (95 min.).
