Storyline

Jack McKenzie is a professional movie composer, who's just finished working on the soundtrack for a big budget Hollywood Sci-Fi movie called The Land of the Astronauts. Unfortunately, the movie turns out to be a major box office bomb, and Jack's out of work again. To make ends meet, he gets a job as a limo driver and quickly bonds with his famous client Thomas Bower - a popular Australian actor working in L.A. who happens to be a fan of his work. He also meets wild Hollywood party girl Erica at an AA meeting he attends and falls for her. In time, the deceptive nature of those around him, the constant pressure he feels from his ex-wife and her hostile boyfriend who also happens to be his ex lawyer, and his own unbearable feeling of guilt over the accidental death of his youngest daughter push Jack to the verge of insanity. As a consequence, he starts seeing the real world around him as a waking dream.

surreal indie trip on a spaceship in David Arquette's mind
11 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got a chance to see this at the Montreal Film Festival last week. David Arquette was there and spoke and that made things a lot of fun.

I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The synopsis of a limo driver and the title Land of the Astronauts was an intriguing mix.

Without giving away spoilers and there are lots I can give away but won't, It's about a former big shot composer in Hollywood who always looks back at the one film that apparently made him rich and well known in the industry. But years of drinking took it's toll on him and he has apparently bottomed out. Divorced. In AA. Driving a movie star around as his chauffeur, plus other spoiler like issues messing up his head.

He keeps trying to escape through dreams and waking nightmares and visions of himself, his old movie and the new woman in his life played by Bijou Phillips who is really awesome.

The line between reality and what's going on in his head blurs.

There's a few disturbing and cool music sequences.

It's a drama and oddly funny at times.

The ending is really interesting but I'm keeping this spoiler free. Me and my friend had a debate afterward of what it all meant.

One thing we agreed on is how good Arquette was.
