Mikey, a wildly narcissistic former porn star fallen on onerous occasions, has returned from L.A. to his depressed, postindustrial hometown of Texas Metropolis, reconnecting along with his skeptical, drug-dependent estranged spouse and mother-in-law, and utilizing his wily charms to ingratiate himself right into a neighborhood of individuals he couldn’t care much less about. As performed by a brilliantly forged Simon Rex (a star MTV VJ within the ’90s), Mikey is a charismatic power of nature—and destruction—who exploits the innocence and goodwill of everybody round him. Pointedly set in opposition to the backdrop of the 2016 presidential election, ‘Purple Rocket’ is an aptly steamed-up depiction of up to date America as a playground for hustlers and con males.”
