THE AMERICAN ASTRONAUT
2001, Artistic License, 91 min, USA, Dir: Cory McAbee

In an alternate version of the Old West, space travel is the norm and interplanetary trader Samuel Curtis sets off on a journey through the solar system, unaware that his old enemy Professor Hess is hot on his trail. Shooting on gorgeous 35mm black-and-white film, writer, director and star Cory McAbee creates an utterly unique and ambitious blend of genres: part science fiction, part Western, and part musical, THE AMERICAN ASTRONAUT is as unclassifiable as it is entertaining.
