Watching "To the Stars by Hard Ways" offers a fascinating glimpse into a culture most Americans don't understand, and have many preconceived ideas about. Sure, the special effects are,,, let's be kind and say unimpressive by modern standards (they did the best they could with what they had). Some of it stunk of cheese, the plot occasionally dragged; and once in a while Soviet propaganda reared its ugly head to remind us of the "glories" of communism.
But it's real value is in the portrait of the underlying idealism of the Russians a decade before the collapse of the Soviet Union. The overall effect of the story and production is simultaneously exotic, confusing, attractive, and familiar. The Russians, it seems, had their own imaginary hopes of what their society would evolve into and face that which they feared; and attempted to create an artistic model for this. All fiction does this to some degree wether its creator realizes it or not. And it also shows that despite the demented situations politicians impose upon us, people have more in common than they realize.
It's an historical artifact that's certainly worth looking at.
