Aroview: Unusually accurate pre-space age adventure chronicles the marooning of an American astronaut on inhospitable Mars, sometime before mankind embarked for real on the moon and beyond.
With quaint, but impressive special effects for its time, this hypothesizes the Martian environment both in rational and imaginative terms, taking certain liberties so as to allow its protagonist to sustain life. A survialist film at heart, the Robinson Crusoe metaphor delivers some classic human conditions - isolation and loneliness in particular - and even a homoerotic subtext courtesy of 'island native' Friday, played by the Amazonian Victor Lundin.
