Movie Info

About the film: Surrealist artist H. R. Giger (1940-2014) terrified audiences with his Oscar-winning monsters in Ridley Scott's Alien. Sci-fi, horror, music, album covers, tattoos and fetish art have been influenced by his intricate paintings and sculptures depicting birth, death and sex. Both a mesmerizing introduction to Giger's oeuvre and a must-see for Giger devotees, Belinda Sallin's definitive documentary DARK STAR: H. R. GIGER'S WORLD shares the last years of the artist's life and reveals how deeply he resided within his own artistic visions. (C) Icarus

Critic Reviews for Dark Star: HR Giger's World

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (16)

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.

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

Overall ... it's a film of appreciation that lacks understanding.

June 11, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | 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.
