"Weird, pretentious, inspiring, fragmented and impossible to shake off. And if that isnt a perfect summation of a spiritual quest, I dont know what is." - Tony Kay, City Arts Online
"A documentary that very well could blow your mind." - Jake Uitti, The Monarch Review
THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF SEATTLE is a ballad about the bizarro-art-punk band Raft of Dead Monkeys, who rose from the ashes of two 90s Christian rock bands and an Adam Sandler joke. Disenfranchised and pissed off, they quickly became notorious for their radical live shows/performance art which included vomiting, bloody nurses, and male strippers. Nick Toti takes this story beyond a talking heads doc, and deploys Errol Morris-esque vignettes, which are then funnelled through a nightmarish Duan Makavejev strainer. THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF SEATTLE is a wholly unique endeavor- one in which the filmmakers results evoke the intended image of the short-lived band.
