A story about this — 3 years ago
Anything with Cameron Diaz is going to be fun to watch, but it was the surreal story I ended up enjoying. The film was based on a short piece of fiction by Richard Matheson, set in the 1970s when exploration of Mars seemed like the next giant leap for humankind. The sets and costumes are spot on. The action starts a little slow, perhaps a bit too cerebral, then heads in a direction totally unexpected, requiring the suspension of more than a little disbelief. I liked it though. Interesting interview with Matheson as a special feature on the DVD, too.
