Storyline

The Heartbreak Hotel nightclub in Providence is having a busy night: the owner's politician father is trying to shut the club down, one of the bands is making phone calls to the afterworld, and a pathetic folk-singer/terrorist is planning to make this his night of flaming glory. Includes such musical numbers as "I Married a Tree" and "Why Do We Feed the Broads?" Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

It's a complex world, but a perfect movie.
25 April 1999 | by nitemanSee all my reviews

For any fan of twisted musicals like The Rocky Horror Picture Show and This is Spinal Tap, Complex World is a great find. The plot loops around in giddy swirls, helped on by genuinely bizarre songs from The Young Adults -- songs like "Christmas in Japan in July," "Do the Heimlich," and "Kill Yourself." These Adam-Ant-on-crack songs are supplemented by original tunes by writer-director Jim Wolpaw, which range from advocating paving New Jersey to denying women food so that the men of the world have enough to eat. The plot is impossible to describe, but it's a twisted, hilarious film. If you can find it, see it.
