Someone named “Herrozzy” has put together a compilation of scenes from the recent movie Alien: Covenant and compared them to images from art history. Some are more obvious than others, but on the Vimeo page, Herrozzy states, “Riddley’s obsession with Divine Comedy and Paradise Lost made it easy. Thanks for watching.”
Glasstire sends out a challenge to name other films with such art historical references!
