    The Andromeda Strain

    ★★★★½

    Watched on Apple TV

    Based on the first novel by Michael Crichton, "The Andromeda Strain" marked a story too unusual for pure sci-fi fare, yet again too authentic to be roasted in a spacey nurse's tale. Influenced as a student by a debate about crystalline life, Crichton unceremoniously created an alien virus that is obviously of scientific origin, thus raising the heartbeat properly.

The Australian is a master at pulling original horror material out of his hat that is such a hit that sequels quickly become a fact of life. But instead of then concentrating on the…

    I think I understood the movie... nah, just kidding!

    Salvador Dali and Luis Buñuel understood that dreams have no logic. They had that ahead of filmmakers like Christopher Nolan, who give the impression of having excessive fantasy, but still press everything into a corset of rules. That does not mean that I dislike what Nolan does. He needs order, so he limits himself. Still impressive stuff.

    Un Chien Andalou is the opposite.
