Storyline

In the idyllic suburban dystopia of Orange, the affable but clueless Paul agrees to be a drug courier for Mr. Ball who's about to take delivery of a drug rumored to be "more addictive than air." Against the better judgment of his best friend D., Paul does the deal for quick cash, but the supplier turns on him and murders D. in the ensuing shootout. Paul goes on the lam with the cash and the stash, but only after promising his dying friend that he'll flush it before Ball puts them in the street. Now, on the run, Paul meets the lonely, beautiful Anne with whom he indulges in the drug. They discover its curious effects, each becoming leery of the other even as they are falling in love. The fallout from the binge and the arrival of one of Ball's vengeful colleagues ultimately forces the couple to confront their demons. Take a trip to the Real Los Angeles, a place where the shimmering exterior conceals a drug culture hungrily awaiting the next new thing. Written by Rene

Shaky camera work but not shaky dialog
14 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A 2000 movie that looks like it was filmed in 90's shaky-cam optics. first of all everyone in this film has they're own philosophy, which is 20 times better than their own story. As they hustle and muscle to get by day by day. the cast is made up of anyone who thought they would be in the next RESERVOIR DOGS actor. Ex-rappers and models hoping to earn their SAG card. You've scene them in a thousand other films. Any ways the camera work is shaky the dial isn't it rings true. There's a lot of foreshadowing and flash-back. Everyone gets their camera time, to say their spiel and it actually pulls the story along. After you heir a gang- banger tell us how the government will market selling air to us, you'll know this is a good movie.
