Being lost in cyberpunk city
16 November 2002 | by (Orivesi, Finland) – See all my reviews

Jari Halonen is perhaps most personal Finnish filmmaker. His second movie takes place in future Vladivostok, where people try to survive after worldwide catastrophe.

Main character is Lipton Cockton, as surface typical cyberpunk-detective in his worn-out coat. But as person, he's combination of Harrison Ford from Blade Runner and Tim Curry from Rocky Horror Picture Show. With his combat cock he is sent to solve the series of mysterious murders.

Film is visually very stylish, something you would imagine the world after destruction would seem. You should also remember, that Halonen had very limited budget when filming this, as Finnish filmmakers always have. Zero budget has always been good test for director; you really have to use your imagination instead of money - and in that Halonen succeeds perfectly.

As story, Lipton Cockton is very symbolic. I think, Halonen is trying to say something about sexuality and manhood, but all this is done very unsure way. It seems like Halonen is afraid to do something really bold... Now there is lot of lost potential. And that's always sad.
