The American Astronaut

I'm watching one of the strangest movies ever made. It's an ultra low budget, rockabilly-punk musical, space western called The American Astronaut. Shot in moodily-lit 35mm black and white, it's set in space where women are apparently so rare that the biggest celebrity is a boy who once saw a woman's breast and describes it on stage for hordes of sexually-perplexed miners. The main character is basically an interstellar trucker, although most of the action (if you can call it action) takes place in hick bars and back alleys. Most of the characters are demented if not outright insane and some of the dialogue is reminiscent of Eugene Ionesco at his most bewilderingly absurd.
