A Discursive S...  He did not have to succeed with the world, or be a perfect prophet with a workable scheme on the screen, to make this a great sf film —which it is because it does everything necessary to such a work.  Its finale is an archetype of great science fiction moments—in this case the moment when a future state of affairs is about to be surpassed by further progress.  That Wells should present it to us alongside the outward looking dream of space travel, constitutes a vision of maturity, a turning away from the frustration of solipsism and despair, the diseased pessimism which World War II placed over his mental life like a shroud.

Again, very few have made the effort to think about the problem very much, much less try to put the pieces together in a constructive way.  The art of montage, for example, can produce a sequence of images which can forcefully elicit thoughts and ideas, as well as feelings, from the viewer. ), its science fiction possibilities (ideas which must be embodied in characters and visual images).  Does reality lend authority where imagination and extrapolation seem contrived? file://G:\NEW DOWNLOADS\Science Fiction Today and Tomorrow.
