Mock Up on Mu

Mock Up on Mu

A radical hybrid of spy, sci-fi, Western, and even horror genres, Craig Baldwin's Mock Up On Mu cobbles together a feature-length "collage-narrative" based on (mostly) true stories of California's post-War sub-cultures of rocket pioneers, alternative religions, and Beat lifestyles. Pulp-serial snippets, industrial-film imagery, and B- (and Z-) fiction clips are intercut with newly shot live-action material, powering a playful, allegorical trajectory through the now-mythic occult matrix of Jack Parsons (Crowleyite founder of the Jet Propulsion Lab), L.Ron Hubbard (sci-fi author turned cult-leader), and Marjorie Cameron (bohemian artist and "mother of the New Age movement"). Their intertwined tales spin out into a speculative farce on the militarization of space, and the corporate take-over of spiritual fulfillment and leisure-time.

Filippo V (jp) wrote: Un film tutto sommato apprezzabile che nonostante molte incertezze riesce comunque ad intrattenere con facilit.

Susan P (br) wrote: It's unique, I'll give it that. It was incredible how stupid the street thugs were and I found it to be somewhat unbelievable that the smart guy in the movie would team up with them. It's kind of a downer too. I guess you have to be in the mood to watch a nuclear meltdown movie?

tp b (de) wrote: At first I thought it was a serious attempt to make a good movie, then I started to hope that it was all a bad joke, because it's just awful. It's not even close to being funny. Bad "acting", horrible English and oh please.

Patrick W (ca) wrote: dark, depressing, dazzling

Cheryl R (br) wrote: not a good movie at all!

Henrik R (it) wrote: Slow paced movie with some very good performances.

Sgt C (nl) wrote: (63%)A handsome modern western that twists a legendary character more for personal acclaim than for the sake of good story telling. Sam Shepard has a perfect feel of an ageing old west outlaw and he is more than capable playing such a well known man. While the rest of the cast isn't exactly all that bad either. It's well shot with some fantastic location work, and the makers have created a very convincing setting. My only issue is whether or not the Butch Cassidy connection and everything that comes with it is actually required, because in all honesty this has enough of an interesting plot without the quite frankly unneeded association distracting from the perfectly fine central theme. The simple fact is this would have been even better, cleaner, more focused film if everyone kept well away from Butch and Sundance, or merely just hinted at the idea.

Johnny L (ru) wrote: Humour stuck in the 90s. I wanted to love this as much as the original. Avoid like bin juice.

Keith s (nl) wrote: Jamie Chung's accent is spot on for a stereotypical Chinese accent. Well done.

Adam R (au) wrote: Cheesy and dated with poor acting. I didn't like it. (First and only viewing - 5/11/2010)

Jordan J (es) wrote: This movie is enjoyable and funny enough to leave you liking it. The only issue I had was the transition of the two stories. At one moment one of the character's story would be more interesting than the other. Then all of a sudden you go back to the less entertaining story. Also the moral of the original book can't really be seen because of too many things going on at once. This movie is worth a buy .
