| Hilarious and unique
Probably one of the best films I have ever seen, this film is a strange science fiction tale about a man who arrives to a space bar, meets an old friend and embarks on a strange mission. Oh, and it's a rockabilly musical. Yes, it's very strange, but not in an incomprehensible or artsy-fartsy way. It is simply put utterly hilarious and wonderful, and the music is incredibly good. I loved every second of it. Please release this film on DVD!
