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

If I can Save Just One Person From This Waste of Time......

You keep thinking that the cliches will stop, that someone will show some emotion, that an English word besides 'f...k' will be used to describe something.....but no, no, NO!! You are condemning yourself to a monumental waste of time if you think things will get any better.

The plot is so confusing, and then it becomes not even worth the bother to sort out. Maybe Elisabeth Hurley was playing a stony-faced, no-emotion, no-care druggy; or maybe....she CAN'T ACT!!! Whichever, even the coupling scenes (it would be an insult to call them 'love scenes') are amateurish. You don't even care about the torture scenes. Glad I couldn't recognize Claire Bloom...she was probably glad, herself.

The lighting is haphazard, the dialogue hardly comprehendible. I wasted $10 on this dog....mad, it was not. Boring, it most definitely was.
