Ants. Harmless creatures, right? If you said or thought “yes” in response, then you obviously haven’t seen Saul Bass’ sole feature directorial effort, the haunting and delirious PHASE IV. When desert ants spontaneously form a collective “hive mind” intelligence and begin to terrorize their fellow desert inhabitants, what does it mean for society as we know it? In short: a new future for life on earth, a new phase of evolution altogether… one without human beings.
A box office disappointment in its initial release, PHASE IV is one of those underappreciated sci-fi gems that is only now being reappraised by modern audiences.
