Guy is an experienced British fighter pilot who is in command of Britain's first manned mission to space. He has trained for this for three years at the height of the Cold War and now he is alone in space with a malfunctioning capsule. He has limited contact with the UK, some unusual communication with the US and some unorthodox communication with Roscosmos deep in Soviet Russia. Who will help him? Will he make the right choice?

Capsule movie full length review - ground control to major bomb

This film runs like an adaptation of a one man stage show and with tight claustrophobic shots of one man's face dominating the entire film, it's difficult to understand why anyone thought it would flourish in the medium of cinema.

Initially I was not clear on any historical context to the film, so I chose to understand it as allegory - some attempt if you will at British existentialism. Very little effort was spent to make the lead character a convincing astronaut (f*cking hell! oh sh*t! oh god! etc) and his colleagues on the radio were equally unprofessional, useless and unhinged. It was clear however that the British, alone and unprepared, defied the expectations of rival nations who might not want to see them succeed in their mysterious mission. The film had some international intrigue, and was not conceptually uninteresting in that regard.

Unfortunately,if you've ever endured the frustration of trying to speak to someone on the phone as their signal disappears, you should prepare to relive this annoyance for the entire film's duration. I will just share some scenes and let the writing speak for itself.

Can you understand? Can you say again? You're breaking up. What do you mean? Did you hear that? Hello? (silence) Are you there? (silence) Your signal is disappearing. Did you hear me? (silence) What's wrong? (silence) Hello? I no understand Russian. Your signal is breaking up. What frequency is this? Say again? (silence) Answer me please. (silence) Where am I? I have a problem. Will you help me? Can you put me back in touch? Hello?

The film fast becomes an endurance test for the viewer, who like the protagonist, is flying through space with headphones wondering if he couldn't just die a little sooner to spare the agony of boredom and tedious repetition. Frankly, I would recommend turning it off. If you grapple with meaning, Kierkegaard is still tried and true.
