Based on Bret Easton Ellis'often-overlooked second novel,The Rules of Attraction is written and directed by Roger Avary(pulp fiction, killing zoe. This film has to be the most underrated film of this year. I was expecting just a normal film about rich kids on drugs but i got a piece of art blended in with college life. Avary makes this film fit into a dozen types of film, a satire, drama, black comedy, romance just to name a few.
James Van Der Beek(Varsity blues, standing still) plays a campus drug dealer Sean Bateman( brother of Patrick Bateman from American Psycho)who falls for the innocent virgin Lauren Hynde(Shannyn Sossamon)who is still in love with her ex Victor(Kip Pardue) who is on a trip across Europe getting high every night. Of course nothing turns out how its supposed to be which is the best part about this movie, it's not predictable nor a stupid little teen flick.
This movie is a serious film for anyone who wants to watch real actors and actresses playing their parts. Avary even has the time to fit in special effects of playing scenes backwards and putting in split screens to see the actors and actresses emotions at the same time.
A great movie!
