The Thing ★★★★½

Well that was incredible!
Basically this is like a playground for Carpenter. He plays with everything that makes him that brilliant director. He plays with every frame, decides what the audience is supposed to see or what should remain mysterious. He tricks the viewer and plays with him.

Like in „They Live“ already the brilliant premise gets me! The premise makes the great atmosphere possible that you, as the viewer, as well as the people on screen do not know, who to trust. And Carpenter manages to show this feeling perfectly!

The cast (Especially Kurt Russel.) The SCORE (i mean ENNIO MORRECONE.) 

All around brilliant.
