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

Well...it is a gay movie.
6 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Premise: A child star turned drug addict seeks a comeback on a gay-themed TV show.

Conclusion: Don't bother! I have seen some real stinkers from this studio and this one is right up there.

The only redeeming factor I saw was the actor portraying the main character, whose name, apparently, really is Richard Viede. He had some shining moments, particularly some facial expressions and glances, that could rival any of Hollywoods younger stars. Unfortunately, he does not have good enough looks, at least not with the makeup & hair they gave him for this.

The directing was non-existent. The gritty, hand-held cinema-graphic style was unrelenting. And the acting, save the lead, was worse than you find on the local community theater stage in Terre Huate, IN.

All that being said, the editor did the best they could with the material given. And that alone makes this not just a train-wreck, but the kind you can at least sit through.
