Fuckface and the Cowboys from Space, Burnout Films, Glasgow, 2006
Years in the making, FF&TCFS is an epoch-spanning, laser-blasting technicolour whirl of a sci-fi western. Fuckface of the planet Fagon, a noble but idiotic Disco Robot, attempts to save his people from the oppressive rule of the Space Cowboys. Contains lots of nudity and violence, but no swearing, sorry.
