Storyline

Topsy (Gunderson) and Bunker (Robertson) are two misfits living in a run-down, fleabag hotel in a corner of Manhattan that time has passed by. They spend their time weaving fantasies of ever more complicated deviousness until, one night, a game goes horribly wrong and the result is the death of a local character named Grace (Stoller). Now, try as they might, the harsh light of day won't leave Topsy and Bunker alone. Reality is coming: but when your whole world is in your head, where do you hide? Written by Jack Roberts

Moody & interesting
9 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Moody, unusual, VERY dark comedy/tragedy about a couple of very unusual roommates. Gunderson and Robertson reprised their stage roles, and Kathy Najimy, who directed the stage version, took a cameo role and is -as always- a delight. Unusual supporting cast includes the formidable Shirley Stoler from "Seven Beauties" and Quentin Crisp. The look of the film has an interesting hue, and some of the night shots of Manhattan have a haunting and beautiful effect. Bunker (the touching Paul Robertson) is a possibly mentally challenged, but friendly soul who shares a run down apartment with Topsy (Steve Gunderson), a domineering yet ineffective bully. Topsy creates an imaginary world and eventually terrorizes Bunker to keep him under his spell, but Bunker eventually becomes unhinged and their lives begin to unravel.
