Wow am I ever going to raise hell with the coworker who recommended this turd. What an awful movie. This movie is terrible for so many reasons. First, it violates a personal rule of mine. For me to like a movie, there has to be at least one character that I think is a decent human being. This movie did not have that. Second, this movie is not believable. The amount of drugs and alcohol that Harvey Keitel drinks, smokes, snorts, and injects is unreal. Third, this movie is slooooooow. There is hardly any dialogue in the movie. Much of the dialogue is inaudible. Fourth, there is almost no plot or story. Characters just enter and leave the film with no explanation of who they are or how they relate to the main character. Things just happen without rhyme or reason. The movie really only has one character and we never learn anything about him except that he is addicted to everything.
Usually a movie that contains gratuitous sex, heavy drug use, or graphic violence is entertaining at some level. This movie manages to have all three and be boring. Incredible!
