At the beginning of the movie, our hero is just a kid, hanging out in town playing with two other kids; the date is approx. early 1960's. Out of nowhere, an airplane appears and lands on the airstrip just outside of town. Everybody jumps onto their various vehicles to go see the excitement. In one brief shot of these vehicles driving away from the main hotel, we can see a satellite dish on top of the hotel. This technology was not available at that time. See more »
I Cannot Believe That This Film Only Has 4 Reviews.
I have an old VHS copy of this film and I haven't had a VHS player for more than a decade. I'm not even sure if this ever came out on DVD, I've never seen it in a video shop and I have looked through many. This movie is kind of like an Outback Australian Sci-Fi Jazz Road Trip, brought to you by the man who blessed us with Bad Boy Bubby. The opening scene when Miles Davis lands his space ship (commercial airliner?!?!!), in the desert and proceeds to blow fragile rural minds to smithereens with an awesome array of Jazz Fusion is priceless. I pray to the almighty gods of Jazz that they might one day release this fine film in a format befitting cinema as far out as this.
