There is a quality in the original alien movie which is so difficult to replicate. An atmosphere which seems so elusive even the vast resources of modern movie making seems incapable of reproducing. The Nostromo is so very far from home. So far beyond help that when the worst happens and they are forced to flee. To run for their lives and even this proves so utterly futile in the face of the..well, Alien.
Take a look into the dark between the two pillars. Is it a gateway? Is it the beginning of a dark cave or a tunnel leading to something awful? A hard path to traverse with only misery and pain at the other end?
Why would we take that path?
Because it is what we do. We stupid humans.
