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
Loved every minute. I wish it got more run time on cable.
I thought the film was wonderful, the way the story progressed without ever bogging down, and the creative narrative asides were fantastic. I thought it especially clever that at the lowest points in the film, the director/writers/producers threw in the funniest parts i.e., the 'Russian Roulette' scene and the 'talking cat' scene. It, as well as the creative use of sped-up film in the driving scenes helped the story along and kept up the pace of the film. I think this would particularly appeal to anybody that likes artistic films, and enjoys watching the work of someone who isn't afraid to be creative.
Besides, Kelly MacDonald as Pia is hot.
