The American Astronaut (with Matthew Chadourne)

  • Ultimate Picture Palace Jeune St, Cowley Rd Oxford, OX4 1BN UK (map)
Mean Girls Banner.jpg

Endearingly eccentric, sci-fi, musical, western about an interplanetary trader voyaging through a rustic and remote solar system, unaware that he’s is being pursued by old friend Professor Hess who wants to kill him. Cory McAbee’s wrote, directed, and stars in this surreal cult comedy which he describes as 'Buck Rogers meets Roy Rogers’.

‘A sui generis, love-it-or-hate-it exercise in homegrown American surrealism.’ Hazel-Dawn Dumpert, LA Weekly

Selected and introduced by Matthew Chadourne
