Great film about alienation
4 September 2011 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

My high quotation has something to do with the ridiculously low quotation that was given to this film. I wanted to see it, because Carl Colpaert has made some very interesting films in the past. He's a filmmaker who single-handedly set up a production-company, Cineville, that specializes in alternative films. If a film has too much content to be considered commercial, then Cineville is likely to be interested to produce this film. Cineville makes films with small budgets and big ideas.

And 'Land of Astronauts' is one of these films, in which David Arquette gets the opportunity to do the kind of acting all actors dream about. He's a man who had some real bad luck in life. He doesn't play the man like a down-and out loser. His character is a composer who's still trying to make it in Hollywood, but while even big name-actors believe in his talent, life isn't treating him very nice.

Hollywood is a place that is really hard to people who don't have the luck of the stars. Jack MacKenzie is a composer that is played by Arquette. He wrote the excellent music for a big sci-fi film, 'Land of Astronauts', but the film flopped at the box-office, while Jack wasn't spoiled by reality before : he lost a daughter and his wife left him with his other daughter. Now he's surviving as a limo-driver, driving people around who used to be his collaborators. He remains human, and does all he can to become the man he used to be. He's on the wagon, is sober now, and regularly attends the AA-meetings. It looks like he's going to recover. The big-name actor he's driving around, Tom Bower, even seems interested in his music. Or at least, that's what he's pretending.

But one can't keep trying. Sooner or later, the truth takes revenge. Living in a world of appearances and false pretenses, he doesn't seem to believe reality anymore. He's real, that's a certainty, but whether Bijou Phillips and many others are what we see, one doesn't really know. Cause in a world where everyone tries so hard to make others believe things that aren't real, one doesn't know anymore.

Though 'Land of Astronauts' may not be a masterwork, it certainly is a movie that deserves to be watched.
