Stills from Alien

Given my last post, I couldn’t resist sharing Gavin J. Rothery post featuring a series of photos of the Nostromo crew from Alien (1979). I found this post via the brundlefly blog, an as a sidenote that blog also has another great post about John Ford’s Stagecoach as lens on bankers an the #occupy movement.

Anyway, the photos of the Nostromo crew reinforce how awesome this film is on so many levels, I’ll share a few of my favorite below, but check them all out here.
