Federico Wedemeyer’s review published on Letterboxd:
I can't BELIEVE how good this films look for it's time. If you told me this was shot in 2015 i'd believe you instantly.
Technically this movie is as close to perfect as you can possibly get. The lights, cinematograhpy, photography, directing... Everything it's just perfect.
But it is not scary anymore, the puppets, although pretty impressive still, feel so out of place in comparison to how good everything looks in here. Every time the Alien showed up, the magic vanished for me... And that's kind of a big deal considering the movie is called "Alien"
I still really liked it tho.
