  • With a space-lounge soundtrack, Ms. Habbema’s killer mod attire (like a turtlenecked pantsuit and a skimpy yellow bikini), and Mr. Andonov’s insouciant charisma, the film is very much of its post-’60s moment, or at least aspires to be.

  • Hermann Zschoche’s Eolomea (1972) was one bizarre highlight, with an otherwise straight science fiction premise of interstellar travel striated by moments of tongue-in-cheek campness, such as a late cameo by a robot which looks like it was stranded from the production lot of Lost in Space, and whose programming code prevents it from deciding between obeying a direct command and complying with a higher ethical principle.
