Plot
Dialogue
With its gracious, intoxicating soundtrack, its spaceship sequences and its initial tone, you wouldn’t believe how much fucking there is in this film. Wait a minute! That spaceship is shaped like a dick! Surely, this is accidental! As they mention, every so often, the aliens need to “procreate”, but just how much intercourse is required before someone becomes pregnant?
Take a sip of Brandy every time someone is “procreating”, and you’ll pass out, horny and dehydrated, before the film ends. This is a space opera with a relatively small budget, that gets away with amazing shots of vast, inhabited land. Most of the action takes place in small villages and in random remote locations. The alien costumes are interesting and strangely derivative of the BDSM culture.
The creators handle dialogue skillfully, which becomes apparent when telepathy occurs between several characters. When it comes to its script and execution, this film is everything but lazy. It goes out of its way to give us mythos and crazy special effects, but the only thing it’ll be remembered by is people having public sex in front of characters who are trying to explain important stuff.
