Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: This is the planet Mars, once known as the resort and entertainment capital of the universe. Over the years, the appeal of Mars has worn thin. The ideas that its entertainment industry were once based on, are no longer valued among smart young couples looking for a good time. No, Mars has seen its day. Now it has become a home for forgotten people with shattered dreams, looking for that break that just isn't there any more. These are today's visitors.

Wonderful!
25 February 2013 | by i_am_bryonySee all my reviews

I love Corys work, The American Astronaut being one of my all time favourites, and Stingray Sam is just as good. The story, such as it is, follows the same dreamlike logic of TAA and one gets the feeling that its where the original inspiration came from. There are huge gaps in the plot and we are expected to take a lot for granted, but thats OK. I'm happy to sacrifice a little character development in favour of moving the story forward, in this case to the next episode. The six episodes that make up the film are perfect little movie-ettes in their own right, reminiscent of the old western series from the 60's and 70's, the ones that used to get shown on a Saturday afternoon.The ridiculous characters and absurd situations Sam and his companion, the never reliable Crugie, find themselves in can often only be resolved by song and dance, neither of which make any sense or are in any way appropriate to the circumstances, hence the dreamlike quality to his films. If you wan't plot led big bangs then look elsewhere. If you want storytelling from an entirely unique perspective them this is the film for you. An absolute gem.
