A decent movie revolving around dark satire and bad portrayals of rock star lifestyles.
It's not a bad movie per say if you manage to look at it from a humorous point of view. The technicals of the movie were decent, with relatively good cinematography and editing. In terms of BDSM, it's not that at all, I mean there is the gear but no real aspects of the culture are portrayed. No consent, which is the main factor, no power exchange and a dismal portrayal of the after effects. It's almost amusing how wrong they were in their portrayal. There was however, a very surreal feel to the whole movie, that being a huge redeeming factor and lets not forget the dark humour. Practically the whole movie has this deep/dark undertone of satire which makes it somewhat entertaining to watch. The storyline was there though it was a bit weak ending with a few unanswered questions. Overall I'd say it's a pretty good watch if you're not looking to take it seriously. I don't regret watching it but if you don't need to spend money on it that would make it a whole lot better.
