A few years back i saw a film called GALAXY QUEST.
It was basically a parody of Star Trek and the fan culture that grew up around that TV show over the years.
But it was also more than that. Much more.
You’ll see what I mean if you watch it.
So for years, I’ve been telling everyone and anyone to see this gem of a film.
Because that’s what it is: a gem.
There’s something deeply satisfying about this film in terms of its story and structure.
At least that’s what I thought.
And until today I thought that maybe i was the only one.
But I’m not the only. Oh no.
Today i found out that no less than legendary American playwright David “Glengarry Glen Ross” Mamet considers it to be “a perfect film”.
Oh NOW you’ll watch it. Suuure.
