Storyline

At eight years old, Richard Veed was the highest paid and most popular star on television. Five years later, he suffered a near-fatal drug overdose and was instantly forgotten. Now, aged 21, Richard attempts to recapture the spotlight as a promiscuous gay teenager in a late-night sitcom. A young filmmaker, Katrina Matters, is hired to shoot behind the scenes of Richard's new show and becomes entwined in the drama of his real life. It is her work that will truly expose Richard to the public, in graphic and shocking detail. As the cameras roll, the pressure builds and Katrina's voyeurism pushes the fallen angel too far... Crazy Richard is the tragic real-life story of the supernova of a star. Written by jj splice Independent Media

easily the worst film I have ever seen
23 December 2004 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Crazy Richard screened in Brisbane in February 2003 as a fundraiser for a local gay and lesbian community group.

I feel I owe my opinion of the film Crazy Richard to the world, because for me it has set a new precedent as the worst film I have ever seen in my life.

Making a pretentious film about a pretentious character doesn't result in a "double negative" result. It doesn't necessarily bestow any value in terms of cleverness.

Basically I believe the film combines the following elements: the characters were boring, the script was awful, dialogue unintelligible, filming poor, editing sloppy and music despicable. It could have been an acceptable 5 minute short - but to force more than that on an audience should constitute a crime against nature.

Everything that is done in Crazy Richard has been done dozens of times before by others - but these people succeed in doing everything worse.

The ideal way to make money from this film as a fundraiser is to have free entry, but charge $15 for anyone wanting to leave early.

Also note that the three glowing reviews that are listed here for "Crazy Richard" are by people who have only ever submitted one review. How suspicious is that?
