I can´t understand all the negative reviews of this film. The plot is quite amazing; one night CAN change our life.
It all starts with Snipes; and he talks to the audience (us, that is) and explains the basic plot. Then the movie really starts. From the first minute to the last; this is way one of the best movies i´ve seen. Snipes does his best role ever; Kinsski is one of the best actresses around.
My favorite actor Robert Downey jr is amazing as the AIDS infected artist and wonderful Kyle MacLachlan is great.
This is Mike Figgis best film and way one of the best movies ever.
