Critic Reviews for The American Astronaut
It's a rockabilly space romp, often very bad but usually a visual treat.
A sui generis, love-it-or-hate-it exercise in homegrown American surrealism.
Movies don't get much more homemade or endearingly eccentric.
It's equal parts creepy, campy, funny, and tedious.
Like a very accomplished student film, amusing and annoying in just about equal measure.
Audience Reviews for The American Astronaut
A space pilot transports the Boy Who Saw a Woman's Breast from Jupiter to Venus to obtain a bounty in this surrealistic space-western musical. I was underwhelmed by this minor cult film; it has some great moments of absurd humor but often drags with sequences of inconsequential nonsense.
Increditablly weird and wonderful. If you like your movies normal and mainstream skip this one but if you like your movies quirky and off the wall you'll LOVE The American Astronaut (or at least I did). Sort of a wacky, black and white, outter space Rocky Horror Picture Show.
