Perpski has seven girlfriends and can't make up his mind on who to love!
13 October 2002 | by (Loveland, USA) – See all my reviews

A charming and beautiful film to watch about one young man, Prepski Morris, and his seven girlfriends. Each girlfriend has a special quality: Serina was his grade school girlfriend and first love, Hilary is a hippie who teaches him to love the land and turn back on capitalism, Denise is the opposite as a rich republican who shows him power and sex do mix; Lorna Doom is the lonely heart spinster desperate for marriage; Tommi is his personal athletic trainer in the bedroom and on the exercise gym; Gina is a figment of his imagination, or is she? And Laurie is his one true love that is his escape from loneliness and deppression. The film has funny moments: The political rally where Denise declares war on Hilary and "women", Prepski's confrontation with real life Jungian psycho-analyst Klaus Hoppe is hysterical. There's an extended dream sequence at the end of the film that segues way into a homage to the MGM musicals of the 50s. Without giving too much away, the film, photographer by German Andreas Kossak is a visual delight and the musical score by John Debney (his debut feature) is incredible. Brett Thompson's film is now a time capsule of the mores and sex culture of the swinging eighties at the abyss of the AIDS epidemic and other biological disasters to come. It's fun, freewheeling, and while the pacing may be a bit slow in places, it's nevertheless worthy of viewing.

According to an interview I read, Brett Thompson, who went on to direct the acclaimed feature "The Haunted World of Edward D. Wood, Jr." was planning to make another film when the investor ran off with the money. He quickly wrote this film and made it on weekends, shooting 35mm on shortends from MTV video shoots. He used actors from CalArts, and while many of the actors its their first time and it shows, the film still has an honest and emotional appeal. The film and its cameraman was featured in American Cinematographer, and he was successful in selling it to Orion Pictures. If you ever see this film, there's also a stunning animation sequence by Dave Cutler (designer of "The Critic" and Disney's "Home On The Range"and also some work on "Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas") .
