[first lines]
Title Card: In 1969 an estimated 500 million people watched as the first man stepped out of the Apollo lander and onto the surface of the moon. / The feat was the culmination of a space race between the United States and the Soviet Union. / A space race that pushed human beings to the VERY LIMITS OF OUR SCIENTIFIC PROWESS. / The new test of our exploratory mettle will be a manned mission to MARS. / The only problem is / We just aren't that good at stuff anymore.

A new view of the Red Planet.
22 July 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw Mars two nights ago at Revelation Film Festival here in Perth. There is just so much wit and creativity in this movie. The script is sharp, the visuals are brilliant, and Kinky Friedman is the sort of President I'd vote for if I was American. Apart from Kinky the cast were unfamiliar to me, but their performances were all spot on. The marsnauts were especially good in the way they portrayed the shifts in and between their characters. The movie's animation style is somewhat like Waking Life - or some parts of Ralph Bakshi's Wizards - with live action being the base and other elements drawn in. The credits show very neatly how a scene with two marsnauts in their rover is built up. Two people sitting in chairs, with a little magic and a lot of hard work, become space travelers driving across the martian landscape. So why only 9 out of 10? Because so far as I can tell, there is no DVD release in the offing. Damn, because I'd really like to see Mars again. And again.
