Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)
US, 1978, 35mm, VO ST FR & NL OND, 115’
Weird plants suddenly turn up all over San Francisco. Initial fascination turns into a struggle for human survival. This strong remake by Kaufman enriches the themes of the 50's classic with a critique on the self-centred, cynical 70's, whilst maintaining the original's primal fear for the mundane.
