Carpenter's feature debut, Dark Star is a hilarious, slacker sci-fi movie. Shot over three years and begun when Carpenter was a film student, it is an inspiration to any aspiring filmmaker.
Gently mocking the sterile professionalism of 2001, in Dark Star both crew and ship are falling apart as we join four space-weary astronauts on an extended mission to blow up unstable planets. The psychotic pet beachball alien and a commander who, though dead, still insists on chatting about baseball, don't help. Dan O'Bannon, inspired as the whining Pinback, went on to write Alien and a first draft of Blade Runner. Quite simply, a classic comedy, irrespective of genre.
