So what did the crowd think?
A little like David Lynch but with a plot you can follow. I loved it.

I dunno I thought it was weird but not that entertaining, I saw it November 2004 at the Leeds Festival

I left not knowing quite what I thought about it.

Got it for my dad on dvd so maybe I'll watch it again.

The best thing about the DVD of American Astronaut is the commentary - which is actually a film of Billy Nayer standing infront of a projection of the film with an audience talking about the film and answering questions. It is one of the most entertaining DVD extras I've ever come across...

As for the film - there are some great songs, some fantastic atmosphere and a wonderful sense of weirdness - but I must have seen it half a dozen times now and I still can't decide whether I actually love the damn thing or loathe it.
