Hands down, MEMORY is a must-see for any of my fellow Alien fans out there (which I'm sure there are plenty of).

What the film comes up with is manna from heaven for aficionados; the trenchant analysis had even this Alien nerd looking at the film in a new light.

Scott's absence almost enhances the idea that this thing came together of its own accord - as though we all somehow shared the same nightmare for two hours in 1979, and it just won't let us go.

Memory: Origins of Alien's deep dive into the influences, parallels and production of the sci-fi classic make it an entertaining, informative companion for the film enthusiast.

Memory is most valuable for its fresh recontextualization of Alien in the same feminist air space as Kramer vs. Kramer and Manhattan, films that vibrate with late-'70s family panic.
