Artists on Film

This past half a century, there was one film that was discussed more than any other. It wasn't '2001: A Space Odyssey' or even 'The Godfather'. It was Ridley Scott sci-fi classic, The Alien, from 1979. This year, the city of Brighton even organized a two-day symposium dedicated to the film. Not too shabby for a film that was first considered to be a poor Star Wars knock-off. In 'MEMORY' Philippe dissects the 'chestburster' scene from 'Alien'. In this scene, an alien, bursts out of John Hurt's character's stomach.
