Nice review, sounds interesting. Thats a pretty impressive cast.

I'd always thought "Major Tom" was done as a response to David Bowie's Space Odessey"

I think Major Tom took his name from Bowie's song, of course. But the trivia I found said the song took inspiration from this movie. But I'm not sure the factual source of that trivia, I found it on IMDb. It would seem odd because while the movie is about astronauts awaiting rescue, the song is apparently about an astronaut intentionally cutting off contact with the ground and drifting off into the great beyond which is his way of "coming home". But then that interpretation I found on Wikipedia. Who knows?
