The American Astronaut

The American Astronaut
1:32:27 | 2001

Categories: Sci-Fi, Comedy, Action, Festivals, Sci-Fi, Fantasy

Space travel has become a dirty way of life dominated by derelicts, grease monkeys and hard-boiled interplanetary traders such as Samuel Curtis. Written, directed and starring Cory McAbee (of the legendary cult band The Billy Nayer Show), THE AMERICAN ASTRONAUT uses flinty black-and-white photography, rugged lo-fi sets and the spirit of the final frontier. We follow Curtis on his Homeric journey to provide the all-female planet of Venus with a suitable male, while pursued by an enigmatic killer, Professor Hess. The film features music by The Billy Nayer Show and some of the most original rock n' roll scenes ever committed to film.

A rather entertaining film with great music and just an all around campy vintage vibe. Kind of Jim Jarmusch-esque... Not for all film fans but there is something here.

I love this movie and also Stingray Sam! There's nothing not to like, so far as I am concerned.

Brilliant. Epic. Weird. And belly-splitting off-color/dark humor.

Extremely well-shot. Good actors with a WEIRD script. Very campy, but keeps you watching. Keeps you guessing.
