Filmography is a deep dive into a director's oeuvre - film by film - to get the big picture. Every quarter, join Consequence of Sound Film Editor, Dominick Suzanne-Mayer, and a rotating cast of guest commentators for new filmic explorations.
For the May edition of Miniography, Filmography’s spin-off series in the off months of the show, we take a look back at Ridley Scott's 1979 space horror masterpiece Alien on its 40th anniversary. Together, Film and TV Editor Dominick Suzanne-Mayer, Editor in Chief Michael Roffman, and Daily Grindhouse editor Mike Vanderbilt discuss the lasting impact of Scott's masterpiece, the ways in which it changed the horror genre, the very '70s nature of its working-class roughneck heroes, and much more.
