I see that Spaceman is getting mostly negative reviews from critics, which is disappointing because the film is an admirable indie with a subject that many of those who love baseball, the counter culture movement from the 60s and 70s or both can appreciate. Bill Lee is a flawed, interesting, articulate character and Josh Duhamel plays him with aplomb. This is the best performance of Duhamel's career and, whether you like his previous performances or not, is one that everyone should check out.

The film is beautifully shot, looks crisp in HD while still giving off that nostalgic, early 80s feel and features a good soundtrack.

The only negative I would provide is that the film did leave me wanting to see more of Bill's life presented on screen as the period of his life portrayed is interesting but by no means the wackiest or most interesting part of his storied career and his life after baseball. Check out the documentary of the same name for his post-MLB career.
