It’s hard to defend a film that even David Fincher walked away from. A film he’s since disowned due to the tremendous amount of shit he had to deal with. He began shooting the film with an unfinished script, the film was over budget, and the executives overruled nearly every decision he made. It was such an awful experience; Fincher went back to making music videos, most notably for Michael Jackson, Madonna, and The Rolling Stones, before returning in 1995 to direct Se7en. Hell I’m surprised he even returned to 20th Century Fox with Fight Club after the way he was treated. But with that being said, Alien³ wasn’t that bad.
Notes: I’m only focusing on the 1992 Theatrical release, not the 2003 Special Edition aka “Assembly Cut”. ALSO, fair warning upfront, there will be spoilers abound.
