The Andromeda Strain

The Andromeda Strain ★★★★★

Still ruthlessly suspenseful and intelligent. When Michael Crichton's detailed imaginings properly made it to the big screen they could be immersive pop entertainment. Yet this isn't a shallow movie, but science fiction as a mirror image of how a bio crisis can unfold. Even more potent now since, aside from the alien angle, this is precisely where we are right now. The visuals remain sharp.
