“Yes, yes, yes! Call me Captain! Captain Simon!”
Simon doesn’t want to talk about sex. But he does talk all the way through it. Sex soothes him. Makes him feel better. Makes him feel like a big man. Like his girlfriend Kathy's big, strong man. But Kathy’s sick of mopping up after him.
Captain Simon is a wry, tender and anarchic exploration of sex, pornification and male inadequacy. It asks whether sex brings us closer to the ones we love or traps us in a fantasy.
