Second Run takes a voyage to end of the universe in IKARIE XB 1 (review)

In this Czech sci-fi masterpiece - based on a novel by Stanislaw Lem (author of SOLARIS adapted into film by both Andrei Tarkovsky and Steven Soderbergh) - a multi-national team of explorers board a vessel to explore the Alpha Centauri star system in a journey that will last fifteen Earth years while only twenty-eight months elapse in space.  As they venture further from Earth, the crew start to face both interpersonal problems as well as threats from seemingly alien forces and a mysterious dark star.  Released in a re-edited version by American International as VOYAGE TO THE END OF THE UNIVERSE, IKARIE XB-1 is presented here in its original, uncut Czech version with English subtitles in a gorgeous widescreen transfer.
