“One of the most entertaining science fiction fantasies ever to come out of Hollywood.”
– Pauline Kael
“No less of a mind-altering beast than Kubrick’s similarly simian-featuring 2001… The satirical jabs are either wittily on the nose or disturbingly under the radar (a never explicitly acknowledged pecking order from light-skinned lawgiver orangutans to dark-skinned warrior gorillas)… As illuminatingly bleak a statement on human hubris as a Hollywood superproduction has given us.”
– Keith Uhlich, Time Out (NY)
(1966, Richard Fleischer) It’s 1995 and five teeny-weeny people – including Stephen (Ben Hur) Boyd, nasty Donald Pleasence, and Raquel Welch in form-fitting diving suit – are injected into a dying scientist’s bloodstream. “A visual delight in the psychedelic tradition” (Phil Hardy), with sets approved by the American Medical Association! DCP restoration. Approx. 100 min. DCP.
“This special effects extravaganza from 1966 has proved surprisingly enduring, despite a technical quality crude by contemporary standards; perhaps it’s the screwball poetry of the plot idea […] that still gives it a grip on the imagination.”
– Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
“All I can tell you is it is quite a trip.”
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times
