“It’s exciting, but it’s far from finished,” Gray said when asked for “Ad Astra” updates. “I’m here [at the Marrakech Film Festival], a little bit on vacation.

Not easier like an easy movie to make but, like,

Roeg would later do the same with David Bowie and Art Garfunkel. Performance is pure cult cinema. Jagger’s performance is a mixed bag, but the film looks amazing. It has an inherent sense of hedonist style as it combines gangster film aesthetics with those of rock music. If you’re going
