Stephen Dorff narrates this tale about how his life goes astray as his character attempts to strike a balance between the demands of directing his first film and the pressures of his new romance with a model. U2's Bono plays a role in this film as both himself and Dorff's character's concience. Written by
This is really a film that got me moved, amazed and demanded empathy without much effort. Joanou hasn't been my all time favourite director, but he managed to get himself at my list of favourites at once (along with Stone, Wenders & Luhrman). First of all, the story and the way it was brought pulled the right emotional strings with me. Above that, the fact that Joanou really has a superb eye for photography/cinematography, the fact that he uses different film stocks and mixes colour with black and white and a variety of film speeds, resulted in my enormous admiration for this movie. This is really the best movie I've seen in a very long time!
