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

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (26) | Rotten (13)

  • 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.

    Jun 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.
