A critical discussion of the 1980 Kubrick adaptation of the Stephen King novel. And a fine thing, too. Though the film is well-trodden territory, Luckhurst’s approach draws fresh attention to the contexts of the work, its many borrowings, as well as to the potential value of a Freudian reading.
An overview of the 1979 Ridley Scott-directed space horror movie. And a fine thing too, discussing the project’s inception, its plot and its main characters (Jones the cat included). Engages well with existing criticism of the movie; a fine addition to the series and to the discussion of Alien and its sequels.
