Sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll are all par for the course at synth-rock band Starfoxy’s house party, but when murder is added to the set list, the differing bandmates must give the greatest performance of their lives if they want to stay out of jail.
Cleverly infusing Kurosawa’s Rashomon into the world of indie rock, filmmaker Todd Berger’s Cover Versions is a hilarious romp following the hazy, contradictory accounts of Starfoxy’s members. Frontwoman and de facto bandleader Jackie is adamant that no partying should occur on the eve of their biggest festival gig ever, but she faces opposition from the young, arrogant member-for-hire Kirk. When one of Kirk’s invited “groupies” winds up dead in the pool, Jackie immediately places the blame on the drunken Lothario. Yet Berger wisely keeps the truth close to his chest as he reveals the alternative perspectives and wildly different personalities of each band member, building up to an applause-worthy encore.
