MEMORY: THE ORIGINS OF ALIEN

Directed by Alexandre O. Philippe (78/52, DOC OF THE DEAD, THE PEOPLE VS. GEORGE LUCAS), MEMORY: THE ORIGINS OF ALIEN reveals the chilling, untold origins of Ridley Scott's cinematic masterpiece ALIEN, rooted in Greek and Egyptian mythologies, underground comics, parasitology, H.P. Lovecraft's fiction, the art of Francis Bacon and the symbiotic genius of writer Dan O'Bannon, designer H.R. Giger and Scott. "With its passionate contributors and lofty ideas, MEMORY: THE ORIGINS OF ALIEN demonstrates that, if nothing else, the study of a film can be as exciting as the film itself." β€” The Wrap. DIR/SCR Alexandre O. Philippe; PROD Kerry Deignan Roy. U.S., 2019, color, 95 min. NOT RATED
