Greatly misunderstood art film...
14 March 2002 | by (Oakland, California) – See all my reviews

If you're not into introspective drug use and existentialism through art and poetry, don't see this film. "Glam" was obviously targeted towards the wrong audience judging from the preview and the cover art. I think people rent this movie expecting it to be a typical light-hearted comedy, and instead are subject to some serious marijuana induced post-modern experimental film-making. This movie was entirely unique, which is not an easily obtainable quality nowadays. I enjoyed it much more with a second viewing, when I had the time to really muse about the messages behind the seemingly message-less dialogue. This film deserves it's place in movie history, whether through fame or infamy. If you want something unusual, original, and thought-provoking, then rent this movie - just know what you're getting into.
