    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.

    In my opinion, this is one of the great films about filmmaking. Also has one of my all-time favourite endings.

    I watched this a few weeks ago and I’m pretty convinced it’s some kind of masterpiece. Such a restrained, assured approach is taken to all three stories, with the final one being a particular highlight - Lily Gladstone is truly remarkable. Up there with Wendy and Lucy as one of Reichardt’s best imo.
