With a villain named Arthur Basel, this is a singularly local film. Add to that the anatomy-defying clothing of RubberDoll, tunes by Otto Von Schirach, roller-skating and synchronized swimming from the TM Sisters, an appearance by Ted Vernon (playing a somewhat fictional version of himself), and José El Reys flavor-saving instrument of justice, and youve got yourself a film that Miami can proudly place on top of its shoulder pads. After the show, head to Back Door Bamby at the Vagabond (30 NE 14th St., Miami) for complimentary admission to the afterparty. Turtlenecks not required.
