This is a really strange documentary you have to see to believe. In 1991, 8 people were sent into a giant terrarium in the middle of the Arizona desert for 2 years. Inside they had replicated the Earths ecosystem to test it out for future Mars colonization and sustainable living on Earth.
Absolutely terrifying from start to finish. There are so many points to discuss here but my takeaway is a reaffirmation that living life according to what society expects of you only leads to regrets, disappointments and a very dull life indeed. Rock Hudson is magnificent (and still hot as hell) as the made-over man, in a deep despair and aching from loneliness while also cracking up from paranoia. I will never forget the finals moments and his screams of total terror.
