Storyline

In New York, the drug-addicted Syd is consumed by drink and drugs - missing his girlfriend London, who broke up with him six months ago after a two-year relationship. When Syd finds that London's friends throw a going away party for her, he decides to go to the party without an invitation. But first he meets the banker and drug-dealer, Bateman, in a bar to buy coke, and he invites his new acquaintance to go to the party with him. While locked in the bathroom with Bateman snorting coke and drinking booze, Syd recalls moments of his relationship with London, inclusive that he had never said "I love you" to his girlfriend despite her countless requests. Bateman also "open his heart" under the influence of cocaine and tells his impotence problem to Syd; in the end he convinces Syd to talk to London. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Woody Allen-like coke movie
11 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What is wrong with me that I know people exactly like this?! This is a spot-on unflinching portrayal of the New York "downtown" people involved with cocaine, the decisions they make, the people they interact with, and the way they act and spend an average day. Honest and unapologetic, if still funny, and entertaining. It shows EXACTLY what people's lives and personalities become when on coke. Chris Evans plays Syd, the rarely likable but engrossing(so brilliantly,it scares me-pay attention to the first scene, and in particular the bathroom scene)coked out, lovelorn, post adolescent, pining away for London (an uninspiring Jessica Biel)his recent ex. Jason Statham plays Bateman (who steals every scene he's in), the hilarious "part-time dealer" who goes along for the ride, as Syd decides to crash a loft party in order to win back his ex. Antics ensue, and the journey is satisfying, if embarrassing or painful to watch at times. Great script, amazing soundtrack, and dead-on stylistically. Worth a view
