Coming of age awakening is the theme of "The Last Astronaut", a process that unfolds along a decade-time continuum. We "see" young friends past, and we "infer" a cosmic future with first contact. The powers of intuition thus become the doors of perception, in our ongoing collage of stunning shots.

Our frenzied conflicts and self-important dialogue are consumed in a back and forth banter between a CIA and NASA, and are often irrelevant in a cosmos that is vast beyond comprehension until we see a more E.T. type film as opposed to finding a carefully plotted out X-Files story. Not surprising then that some of us huff and puff about the film's slowness and minimal story but with a solid payoff at the end enough humor to hold us in the seat and plenty of cinematic shots as eye candy for us not to move. The grown up scenes are believable and support the story well. For perceptive viewers, the remuneration is an inspirational sense of a unique story with 3 endings that tie together nicely.
