I watched an movie in the 90s about a man who was traveling in space:

  • the man was alone in a spaceship
  • seems like an employee of a cargo company, or something like that
  • there was mechanical head built-in on board
  • and they talk to each other about space and life time to time
  • everything was getting meaningless, and absurd while going to such a far distance
  • because traveling like that means wasting human life (time) also

Last sentence was the main theme of the movie, somewhat implied.

The movie looks like mostly black and white; but it was colorful, perhaps a 'b-movie' on VHS.

It was very interesting movie, I hope someone can identify it. Thanks.


I'm probably wrong but it sounds like Silent Running or possibly Darkstar

Silentrunning 1972

Dark Star 1974

  • Thank you! I know Dark Star. Silent Running was look interesting, but it is not what I am looking for. The man was always alone in the ship as I remember. And he was traviling in deep space, not in our solar system. – Digerkam Feb 20 '13 at 6:52

Could it be an episode from a TV series, like The Twilight Zone episode "The Long Morrow"?

  • Very good point, but I dont think so, I am sure that it was a movie. But that episode was really very close. Thank you! – Digerkam Feb 23 '13 at 21:27
