Storyline

Ivan Beckman, Hollywood's most sought after talent agent, the darling and crown prince of La-La Land is dead. How and why did it happen? Was it drugs, murder or excess, or perhaps something altogether more mundane? We begin with an ending and then catapult back a number of days to the apex of Ivan's brilliant career as he bags international megastar Don West onto his company's books, and then charts the highs, lows (and they are so very low) and extreme excesses of his final days. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Incredibly sad and disturbing, but powerfully effective
18 February 2003 | by (chicago) – See all my reviews

A film has never made me cry more than this one. All the credits of the movie are in the beginning, so that at the end, it's actually "the end" and you leave the theatre. Based on the plot, I found this to be incredibly effective. Not only is it about the coldness of Hollywood and how easily people are thrown away, it's largely just about cancer in general. There have been a ton of films about people suffering from cancer, but I would have to say that this movie projected cancer in the most emotional way ever. The combination of film style and music is incredibly effective and enhances the sadness of the main character's illness.
