"I was at a party, it was late, I was about to go home."

Obsessions is the name of a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series Somewhere Out There. It was originally broadcast on January 21, 1996.

Synopsis

  • Joe becomes obsessed with a woman at a party, in an elevator, and in a cafe which later disappears.
  • Joe is a rock star and gives a speech to a college graduating class.
  • Joe is shipwrecked in the amazon and displays his modern gadgets to the natives.
  • A woman in a strip club tells Joe about about her disturbing dream.
  • Mixed absurd monologue: a hummingbird lands on a rolling car, an underwater hotel during a monsoon, a brothel where patrons are offered medical records of the prostitutes, an enlightened prison, a woman smears cake batter on her breasts and plays the piano, a woman uses a Nordic-track in front of a tv with winter scenes.
  • Ridding ourselves of the weight of dead men's thoughts.
  • Were human beings meant to live in the moment?
  • Some, too much, enough.
  • A completely uneventful trip commemorated.
