Ad Astra (film #55 on Open Source Movies). [Category: Outtakes & Obscurities]

This well-made science fiction short is a bit hard to follow, but it does create a compelling and disturbing mood. It involves a man on a future, dried-out shell version of Earth who manages to arrange to go to a colony planet under false pretenses. Other than that, I’m not sure exactly what happens, though the ending is rather gruesome. Still, the mood created makes you want to view the film over and over and think about it until you get it. It’s technically very well done for a low-budget film posted to Open Source Movies. The music especially is great. This director has some definite talent and potential.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: ****.
