The Alien series with Sigourney Weaver are well known science fiction movies.
I have never thought of them with a feminist/anti-feminist twist before, and I have no idea why this suddenly occurs to me now.
Weaver portrays the futuristic ultimate feminist independent amazon warrior and if you’ve seen the movies falls in love, so to speak with the Alien.
If you look at the Alien’s behaviour, destroying anything around it in order to provide a safe ‘nurturing zone’ regardless of the consequences, you could view the Alien as a portrayal of the ultimate feminist – the superfeminist of the universe – based on an extended view of our own extreme feminist.
I’m left wondering if that is simply coincidence or whether the script writer was thinking along these lines?
But then, I’ve always wondered about that part of the movie – the relationship between the Alien and this human female, and the captivating fascination the Alien had to the mind of a ‘human female’.
