Critics Consensus

Dark Star only provides a shallow glimpse into HR Giger's World, but fans of the provocative artist's work will find a spoil of twisted riches here.

Critic Reviews for Dark Star: HR Giger's World

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (13)

  • The film captures both the claustrophobic and melancholic mood of Giger's house, and also, perhaps, his mind.

    July 2, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    June 25, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    June 9, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Attempts to explore the darkness behind the art, but mostly finds a man living out his golden years in peace.

    June 4, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Fails to bring Giger to life in any kind of illuminating way.

    May 29, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    May 28, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
