Picks and Pans Review: White Dwarf

Fox (Tues., May 23, 8 p.m. ET)


This dark fantasy film is set in the year 3040 on a far-off, bifurcated world named Rusta. The inhabitants on one side live quaint, pastoral lives in constant daylight. On the other side of a great, planet-girdling wall, another, more medieval society lives in the dark. Neal McDonough plays a new doctor serving a six-month internship on Rusta. Reminiscent of the 1974 sci-fi film Zardoz, this fanciful, lore-laden film was written by Bruce Wagner (Wild Palms) and produced by Francis Ford Coppola. Wagner's fable—Manichaean, mystical and macabre—is somewhat esoteric and unfocused. But it makes interesting-viewing. Paul Winfield and CCH Pounder costar.
