    Nude on the Moon

    ★★½

    Hallucinating sci-fi comedy characterized by a hilarious amateurism, which makes any criticism of the senselessness of the plot or the review of wrong connections and disconcerting directorial choices superfluous. The staging of proto-hippie themes, linked above all to sexual liberation, is nevertheless very interesting and anticipates the 1968-born Barbarella by several years. A must for lovers of trashy science fiction.

    The direction is beautiful and the cinematography very refined, but I think that the visual side, however remarkable, makes a chamber drama that should be based more on writing a little too aesthetic. The script is still good, rhythmic and often brilliant, but at times it yields a little and it tends to repeat itself in the second part. The soundtrack is beautiful (even if at times a little invasive), Washington and Zendaya give very good performances. The plot, the setting and some experimentalisms reminded me of Faces by Cassavetes (1968).

    An absolutely atypical science fiction film, in which the representation of extraterrestrials is particularly elegant and original because rather than creating a classically science fiction plot it serves as a pretext for philosophical themes: however I would have preferred that the ending would focus more on the interactions between aliens and humans that on the ethical question faced by the protagonist, which I found too controversial and less interesting than the reflection on the way in which language shapes our mind. Beautiful direction, great acting by Amy Adams, the cinematography didn’t convince me 100% but is still suggestive.
