Storyline

This film has nothing to do with Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story. Rather this movie is about the World War II naval base called Treasure Island that was located in San Francisco Bay. Set in mid WWII, two code specialists are hard at work trying to decipher Japanese messages and sending confusing messages to deceive the Japanese. However the film is more about the sexual mores of the day than about the wartime effort. It seems each of the coders has a secret. The first is secretly a polygamist, with one wife being Japanese-American that he keeps hidden away so she won't face detention and the other wife being sickly leaving her unable to go out, as well. The other man can only have sex with his wife if another man is watching his performance. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

For those who enjoy confusion
3 February 2000 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

I have no idea how to describe this movie, and also would love to provide others the same opportunity I had - seeing it with no prior knowledge of what to expect. I enjoyed it immensely but can also say I barely understood what was going on, if in fact there was anything to understand in the first place. Fans of David Lynch (tangentially) or especially Guy Maddin films should particularly enjoy this, and any fans of the comic book EIGHTBALL will probably be beside themselves with joy and wonder (it came as close as any film I've seen to the tone and mood Dan Clowes creates so effectively).

One slight note just to warn anyone easily offended - this movie, if rated, would be NC-17 for sure. Fans of male full-frontal nudity, however...hmm, well...yes. This is weird wild stuff.
