  • An illuminating critique of a criminally overlooked parable of '60s paranoia, arguably the bleakest mainstream Hollywood film ever made
  • Part SF, part body horror, part thriller cum black comedy, this Constellation illuminates the film's many attributes, and contends that Seconds is both emblematic of the time in which it was made and perpetually relevant to new audiences
  • This Constellation sheds light on the film's many attributes, from its stylistic significance to its political commentary, and its critique of '60s masculinity
