  • Ridley Scott’s focus on pioneers of space with the Mithraics and the Aetheists colonising Kepler 22b
  • Opening sequence aesthetic is reminiscent stylistically of Metropolis and 2001 A Space Odyssey
  • The design of Mother came from a statue in Rockerfella Plaza.
ATLAS (1937) Lee Lawrie and Rene Paul Chambellan (American, born Germany. 1877 – 1963 American. 1893 – 1955)
  • The landing sequence is just about the same as the one from Prometheus.
  • Soundtrack for DARK Netflix
  • The planet Kepler 22b is an actual planet obriting a sun like star in the habitable zone 180 parsecs from Earth.
  • Dawn of Man from 2001: A Space Odyssey: Similarities are the bones, rock, trees and desert.
  • Trees are Aloe Dichotoma
  • The androids were dressed in latex to imitate naked Adam and Eve.
  • The crops were already present when they arrived on the planet, it reminds me of the part in Alien Covenant when they arrive on Planet 4 they observe wheat growing in a field. And Charlie Holloway’s comment in Prometheus “God doesn’t build in straight lines”
  • The cg for the UI in the pod is quite good.
  • Father tells a joke similar to the Walter Model in Alien: Covenant.
  • Spirals
  • Crop circle farming
  • Mother with pipes giving the embryo’s nutrients is similar to the Engineer in the hypersleep chamber in Prometheus.
  • Tally falls into a hole just like this lady here while distracted

Mother’s Banshee scream supposedly herald the death of a family member.

  • At -6:11 she freezes the door on the Mithraic ship and punches through it.

It may be a homage to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining
