I’m not a fan of sci-fi, but I love films about astronauts which address the odd technical rituals, the overwhelming sense of dislocation, and the historical and social ramifications which are wrapped up with human space travel. Veteran Rooftop filmmaker Jim Finn’s debut feature Interkosmos is bizarre delight filled with realistic lift-offs, surreal dance sequences, and a smattering of speculative archival footage. Includes an amazing soundtrack by Colleen Burke and Jim Becker (from Califone, who played at Rooftop’s Dark Toons show in 2006). The film is out now on DVD from Thrill Jockey, and I recommend buying a copy now.
