Tommy Battles the Silver Sea Dragon is the surreal musical drama of a man's struggle to overcome the guilt of his mother's death. On a quest for absolution, Tommy finds himself on trial where his confession delves into his deepest memories, but these are found to be distorted by projections of fear, desire and shame. Tommy's elaborate self-delusion weighs heavily on his girlfriend Carolyn, whose experience as a woman is overshadowed by the effects of Tommy's maternal loss. Dream and reality blur as the characters from the courtroom infiltrate his memories, dragging him back to the courtroom in a closed loop of self-hatred and blame. Can Tommy interrupt the cycle of guilt before it destroys him and the one he loves?
Some of the movie was filmed at the Livonia MI Salvation Army. See more »
The music of this film stuck with me for days. The imagery remained surreal, calm and nostalgic.
Overall, this film had a haunting charm to it. I encourage you, dear reader, to watch and enjoy. It is a crafty little, gem made with a shoe-string budget. I sincerely hope that Luke Shirock continues in his film-making career because this was such a stylistically unique delight.
