Storyline

The 21st-century tale centers on taciturn detective Lipton Cockton as he looks into a series of murders involving exploding victims. The main clue in the case is the white halter dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in the subway vent scene in The Seven Year Itch. This clue directs Cockton to the highest levels of the super company LTD Prods. But though Cockton tries and tries, he cannot get there and ends up himself blown to smithereens. Written by Ulf Kjell Gür

A thing you don't see everyday: An indie scifi film from Finland
16 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

In "Lipton Cockton in the Shadows of Sodoma", it is year 2037 and people mysteriously explode in the peripheric city of Vladivostok, part of the United Europe. A top detective, Lipton Cockton, is sent there to investigate this crime wave. The movie goes a bit strange and funny, but this film is not to be taken too seriously. Still, the sets and models are quite good for an indie film like this, they succeed in creating the ragged and dirty atmosphere of future Vladivostok.
