Storyline

Michael Mikaele is a young man in a catatonic state living in a psychiatric ward where his doctor thinks her sympathies for him justify raping him. It's all part of his mad world, and we see what brought him there. He's an artist from a broken home, working for eight years at a job that he loathes, drawing pictures from sayings on sexually suggestive T-shirts. Mike's unsympathetic boss, Bill, plays bad motivational tapes over the P.A., makes Mike's girlfriend (another employee) handle him during office hours, which is espied by co-worker Joni, and refuses to let Mike have the rest of the day off even though he is clearly ill. He ties together T-shirts out the bathroom window to escape, and befriends a man, Rod, whom, unbeknownst to him, is his girlfriends father. He, however, hallucinates that the cinematographer is walking around the apartment in nothing but a towel. When the two attend a party, where everyone in the film (except his parents, doctor, and nurse) seem to be, things ... Written by Scott Hutchins <scottandrewh@home.com>

weird, obscure and not particularly good
28 March 2002 | by GangsteroctopusSee all my reviews

This looks like somebody saw a few too many midnight screenings of "Eraserhead" and said to him/herself, "Hey, I can make a weird movie like that." As if. And what an awful title! You know you're in trouble when script's written so that all the women in it are constantly chasing after the main male character (and he's as utterly unappealing as the guy in this movie is). Pretty pretentious and almost entirely lacking in interest (not to mention plot). At least some of the music is sort of interesting.
