Storyline

High society, high times, and no end in sight. Shameless is an emotionally charged story about heroin, high living and the dramatic power of love as the last chance for survival. In the tradition of Leaving Las Vegas, Antonia begins a slow descent into the self-destructive world of heroin addiction, when she meets Mike, in a chance encounter. At first she merely uses Mike to run errands to get the drugs she desperately needs. But after a night of passion, Antonia begins to fall in love and Mike knows he must use all of his resources to help Antonia overcome her habit soon or... it may kill her. Written by B. Butler

Tails Off A Bit
15 August 1999 | by (Leicester, England) – See all my reviews

Mad Dogs starts off well-A police raid of a local drug store, but after the first half an hour, it becomes incredibly boring. It focuses on the romance between a hard ass American biker and a lonely druggy.

No-one really deserves any real recognition for this, but Jock Ackland is probably better than the rest. Elizabeth Hurley is patchy. In some scenes she does well, but in others you wonder why she is such a big success.

Despite a decent beginning and a good ending, this is nothing compared to other British films like Trainspotting, The Full Monty and Face. Rating=2/5
