Storyline

L.A., real time. From her limo, the wealthy Lauren eavesdrops on her lover Rose's tryst with movie producer Alex Green. The assignation takes place in his company's screening room between meetings. Alex's wife walks from therapy to his office, tells him she's leaving him, weeps in a bookstore restroom, and walks home with a cocaine-sniffing actress friend for what may lead to sex. Alex is drinking, wants to quit work and move to Tuscany, laughs at pretentious movie pitches, and puts off Rose when she asks for an audition. A film director sees Rose and decides she's perfect for his next picture; she takes a screen test. She's ecstatic and calls Lauren: jealousy takes over. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Ground-breaking film work with great cast and cool DVD extras.
3 March 2001 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

From the director of LEAVING LAS VEGAS and STORMY MONDAY comes a black comedy about life in Hollywood with a stellar cast and an amazing concept.

Four continuous shots play themselves out on a screen split in quarters. The DVD comes with many great special features including a making-of diary from the director, a make your own audio mix - where you chose which screen to hear the audio from, and the full-length version #1. The theatrical release was version #15. Both are included on the DVD with the director's commentary. A must see for film students or any lover of original and daring cinema.
