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.

Fun Art Film
9 September 2010 | by storyofcSee all my reviews

Land of the Astronauts is fun. It's an art film. How often does that happen? Credits rolled, lights came up... I was in a strange mood. I appreciate the fact that it had an effect on me, like one of those textured segue songs on NPR or some ambient PBS special about space, or secondhand pot smoke in a small European car. The film made me want to sit in Elysian Park and contemplate loss and reinvention while staring at the LA skyline. Maybe listen to Pink Floyd or Brian Eno for a few days. The music and talent are great. My favorites to watch were David Arquette and Bijou Phillips and Tom Bower and Lin Shaye. Yay green face Shaye! I look forward to seeing another story from Carl and his team.
