The film captures both the claustrophobic and melancholic mood of Giger's house, and also, perhaps, his mind.
Sallin balances enlightened perspective on Giger's mythopoeic style - his feverish fusions of flesh, exoskeleton and machine, probing depths of the human condition - with casual rhythms of his daily life.
The spectre of imminent mortality ... adds a layer of poignancy to what might otherwise have been a more prosaic, if still totally interesting, portrait of an eccentric creator.
Attempts to explore the darkness behind the art, but mostly finds a man living out his golden years in peace.
Fails to bring Giger to life in any kind of illuminating way.
Death has always hung like a shadow over Giger and his art, which has its passionate partisans, but is not for the faint of heart.
[H.R.] Giger's work tapped into the otherwise unremembered trauma of the perinatal journey; all he really knew was that in general he put his exquisitely creepy visions on canvas to keep them from freaking him out.
It's the small details that lead us to the conclusion that the artist was not only capable of giving shape to a decidedly perturbed subconscious, but felt exceptionally comfortable in it. [Full Review in Spanish]
A dignified tribute to a very provocative figure.
Only a few of the personal responses or reminiscences here are truly interesting. But it's Giger's images alone which hold our gaze, confronting and confounding us, intriguing and chilling, snaking and startling.
Belinda Sallin's documentary brings us into Giger's world as if we're the crew of the Nostromo in Alien exploring a mysterious planet.
If you always wanted to watch Giger sign autographs or sit in meetings, Dark Star will be your jam.
