SWIMMING WITH SHARKS meets THE PLAYER!
16 June 2003 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

CONTROLLED CHAOS is SWIMMING WITH SHARKS meets THE PLAYER: A former assistant to Oliver Stone makes her debut with this thinly veiled, fictional tell-all account of her time with the notoriously hot-tempered talent. Taking its title from the director's work ethic, "Controlled Chaos" stars Amy Blomquist as Elsie, the stand in for writer/director Azita Zendel, and Don Hughes as Rick Jones, the temperamental, Stone-like director who has Elsie at his beck and call. Elsie is generally sympathetic and level-headed when dealing with the minutiae of her boss' personal life, going so far as to take the blame for many of his mistakes. But when Rick's various projects, mistresses, and drug suppliers all come knocking at her door at once, Elsie is overwhelmed--a feeling not abated by the nosy investigative reporter who's looking to dig up dirt on Rick and possibly bed Elsie in the process. The independently produced "Controlled Chaos" sealed a limited theatrical release in mid-2003.
