Some of the greatest science fiction films of all time were made in the 1970s—and we’re not talking about Star Wars. This weekend, the Harvard Film Archive begins a ten-day tribute to some of cinema’s brainiest and best otherworldly visions, from David Cronenberg, John Carpenter, Philip Kaufman, and Robert Altman, among others. The screenings most making us wish we were in Cambridge, though (not surprisingly), are Andrei Tarkovsky’s interior-world outer-space saga Solaris and Nicolas Roeg’s one-of-a-kind alien invasion story The Man Who Fell to Earth.
