Thank you MIFF 2014 for screening trippy 70s cult film Phase IV – AND the legendary lost ending sequence! This sci fi pic has so much going on…Hyper-intelligent, mega evolved desert ants battling humans in the Arizona desert, seriously intense (with a touch of creepy) scientist action, crop circles and sinister geometric ant hills. Add in delirium, brightly coloured poisons, a geodesic dome and some seriously one dimensional characters. The lost ending is a gorgeously surreal look into the ant-controlled future. With ziggurats. Phase IV is the only feature-length film directed by Saul Bass, and well worth watching.
