The American Astronaut Reviews:

... you'd have got something like The American Astronaut.Writer/actor/director/musician Cory McAbee's ultra-low-budget indie The American Astronaut is something that almost defies description. Shot in black-and-white, it hearkens back to the science fiction of the 1900s and its description of the universe as consisting of a series of 'themed' worlds. Venus is inhabited solely by Southern Belles; Saturn by lonely miners; and there's a bar with an all-male dancing contest in the asteroid belt. Zone cowboy Samuel Curtis wends his method through this dreamlike universe with a blase charm, like Han Solo if he'd recommended to Greedo that they don't fight, but instead go bass fishing. Pursued by a deranged Pee-Wee Herman-esque angry scientist (played by noted hero actor and HBO regular Rocco Sisto), he has to take The Man Who Once Saw A Woman's Breast and exchange him for a corpse, which he can then take back to Earth, along with the stinking hydraulic gimp that he picks up along the way.If this all sounds confusing, that's because you're over-thinking it. McAbee's fourth film and his full-length debut is a collection of oddball moments and weird incidents, said with a certain sweetness of tone. Early David Lynch is a nice sign post, but then so are the Quay brothers. Yet neither has McAbee's well-intentioned sense of humor. There are no overt jokes, but somehow he catches that mood of safety that pervades the oddest of dreams. No matter how bizarre, it never becomes terrifying. This is, of course, helped by the occasional song and dance number, with melody provided by the director's day job in his band The Billy Nayer Show.If McAbee has made any mistake, it's that this is almost too relentlessly and resiliently oddball. Conventional audiences will have no truck with this, and those looking for subversive cinema may search that it almost tries too difficult to be off-kilter. However, while McAbee does feel like he's pushing his own private envelope, it's undeniable that he is has special and perverse cinematic vision. Most importantly, his vision allows him to create a real constructive virtue of his low-to-zero budget. Primitive zone cowboys who managed to open their barn into the solar void test tin cans as oxygen filters: zone travel is represented through flash cards: and bizarre alien cultures are summed up by raiding the prop cupboard of the local amateur dramatics society. In less talented hands, this would be abortive. Yet McAbee thinks around all the issues out of which so many another directors just purchase themselves.


If you like the silly and/or absurd, see this film! It is definitely one of the most enjoyable things I have seen in quite a while.Bon appetit.P.S. If you can't suspend your disbelief and just have a nice time with it, you will probably not like it.


Probably one of the greatest movies I have ever seen, this movie is a strange science fiction tale about a boy who arrives to a zone bar, meets an old mate and embarks on a strange mission. Oh, and it's a rockabilly musical. Yes, it's very strange, but not in an incomprehensible or artsy-fartsy way. It is simply place utterly hilarious and wonderful, and the melody is incredibly good. I loved each second of it. Please release this movie on DVD!
