Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are working backwards through film history, using STAR WARS as the starting point!
This week on EPISODE ZERO they explore Douglas Trumbull's SILENT RUNNING, a sci-fi epic starring Bruce Dern as an environmental activist who defies orders to destroy Earth's last remaining forests! With a screenplay by Michael Cimino (THE DEER HUNTER) and Stephen Bochco (NYPD BLUE), and early effects work by STAR WARS vfx pioneer John Dykstra, SILENT RUNNING inspired the creation of R2-D2 and even the tv series MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000!
