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 bizarre, pervert Finnish science fiction film stunned me.
8 February 1999 | by mattilaSee all my reviews

Vladivostok, the far eastern border on the European Federation. A stunning mystery of self-exploding men and women... And as Lipton Cockton, a private eye and a tough guy, solves these mysteries he also finds the way to his inner self.
