Analysis Of ' The Earthling ' By William Holden

Ignoring any theistic worldview, the primary message of this deeply existential movie is that man is alone in the world, without any deep meaning or fundamental morality to life except what you can find for yourself....   [tags: Meaning of life, Existentialism, Outback]
