Space Brains - 45 - The Fifth Element

The Fifth Element is a 1997 English-language French science-fiction action film directed and co-written by Luc Besson. It stars Bruce Willis, Gary Oldman, Milla Jovovich and Chris Tucker.

This is a classic movie that broke boundaries and excelled at world-building and dividing audiences. Space Brains discuss their response to the world and characters, talk about the particular editing style used in several scenes to achieve compression of story and introduction of humour and tension. We also explore the pseudo-scientific theory of Nibiru and the end of the world caused by planetary or inter stellar visitors.
