review by
Mike Haberfelner

Basically, this is not so much a purely narrative movie, and more of a parody of the experience to watch a mini-series on a local public access channel, with cheap adverts and all, so forgive if this doesn't make too much sense:

It all starts with Uncle Bobbo's (Vincent Stalba) kiddie TV show where young Purity (Stella Creel) explains how rubber is essentially made out of the blood of dinosaurs, a show that ends on a very inappropriate show - this segment was actually first released as the standalone short The Blood of the Dinosaurs. Then it's off to the main storylines, one of them being artist Marge (Kali Russell) daydreaming about being Captain Corn crossing the galaxies to find the center of the universe in a Star Trek like adventure, her crossing paths with her nemesis Dr. Universe (Jeff Pearson) ever so often. But there's also the story about Marge the mechanic (Kali Russell again) reading a choose-your-own-adventure book about grown up Purity (Kali Russell yet again) going on a search for the secret of the universe, her efforts somewhat thwarted by vampiric Mr. Universe (Jeff Pearson again). But then sometimes, the film also has random making-of scenes of itself thrown in, just for good measure ...


... and if you think my synopsis sounds like a bit of a garbled mess right now, I won't for one minute argue with you - because that's the exact point of the movie, it was never supposed to be a straightforward narrative but basically conceptionalized as an experimental comedy - and the outcome is decidedly mad, for one thanks to the director who dares to take risks and who manages to make the often intentionally cheap aesthetics work for the movie instead of against it, and also thanks to the cast who are clearly in on the joke but play it mostly straight, creating utter hilarity in the process. Ultimately this is a very unusual experience, but great entertainment all the same.
