Grade Z Andrei Tarkovsky? Soviet Union, Science Fiction, slow pacing, long takes. Strange planet, mind powers, talking and more talking. Solaris (1972) reimagined by Sandy Frank? Memory loss, hero stranded, “That’s me in the corner!!!” “That’s me in the spotlight!!!” “Losing my religion!!!” “Trying to keep up with you!!!” “And I don’t know if I can do it!!!” “Oh, no, I’ve said too much!!!” “I haven’t said enough!!!” “Simply Irresistible!!!” or “It’s Unbelievable!!!”? Higher Ratings, Tag, Mr. Coffee, Salvador Dali, The Village People. “Czechoslavkian Sandy Frank Movie?”, “So what else in new?”, “It’s like if Hitler were the Surgeon General, he’d look like that.” “Yay Sandy!” or “I know him”?
Note: Originally titled Per Aspera Ad Astra and clocking at 148 minutes. Producer Sandy Frank gained the rights, excised nearly an hour, dubbed it, and renamed it Humanoid Woman for American audiences.
@optiMSTie KTMA certainly had a HEFTY infusion of Sandy Frank in their library. Has any of the Best Brains went into detail on first discovering these films in interviews? Their reaction and decision making it a running joke? They riffed what they had yet even in Season 0 Sandy Frank commands acknowledgement one would love to learn more about.
