A hustle here and a hustle there...
4 May 2000 | by (Champ sur Drac, France) – See all my reviews

Warhol is not far, his cinema more than inspired this sleazy plot... and the movie is just as boring as Warhol movies.

The idea was not bad though and the milieu depicted looks realistic enough. But a film cannot be good without good actors and a good director. Morrissey did not really manage to take us for a walk on the wild side... try again ?
