An incomplete but fascinating curio.

Miko is a mouse. That’s about the only thing I’m sure of here. The movie is set in a bizarro world that never explains itself, and it’s difficult to find our bearings while we’re watching it. Still, much like people, sometimes looks and attitude are everything. Miko certainly has that going for it.
The film is about a young man who gets fired from his crappy job as a bus boy. All he has left in the world is his pet rodent. He finds a flyer for a magical place named Mouse World, and figures that’s their ticket to the big time. After buying said ticket, he discovers that Miko has been stolen by some kids and beaten to death with sticks. Bummer, man.
I’m not sure what the moral is here. To be honest, I wasn’t sure of my name after watching this thing. But it certainly makes for compelling viewing. It looks and feels like something Tim Burton might have doodled into a notebook as a teenager. In other words, this is a developmental work – an incomplete but fascinating curio.
