The American Astronaut

Writer/director/actor/musician Cory McAbee's low-key 2001 cult flick is a no-budget sci-fi musical (no, really) about an interplanetary trader sent to the far reaches of the solar system to deliver a cat. As payment for the cat, he receives a Real Live Girl. This sets off a strange chain of deals and trades which puts our hero into conflict with his mysterious nemesis, Dr. Heiss. The special effects are all (intentionally) sub-Flash Gordon. Still, this looney, lo-fi and completely unpredictable parody has its rabid fans. 93 minutes
