The American Astronaut ★★★★½

How often can you say you've just watched a scifi western musical? Unconventional only begins to define this movie and while its in no way perfect it still adheres so unswervingly to its own internal logic that it manages nevertheless to hold together to the end. This wacky, bizarre, kookily entertaining film is one of my all time favourites and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for something a little different to experience. Even if the story doesn't do it for you the stark, crafted B&W cinematography and compelling offbeat music still gives much to enjoy. Watch it and enjoy.
