It's December 1980. Mark David Chapman (Jared Leto) arrives from Hawaii to stay at the YMCA. He's obsessed with former Beatle John Lennon and starts staking out his New York home at The Dakota. He befriends Lennon fan Jude (Lindsay Lohan) and paparazzi Paul (Judah Friedlander). In a couple of days, he would shoot and kill Lennon outside of The Dakota.
One can't deny Jared Leto gained a ton of weight and fully commits to this role. He gets full marks for the attempt. It's a tough watch. His slow droning narration is tiring and I'm not a big fan of narrations in general anyways. The story itself is a meandering walk in the mind of a mad man. Leto is fearless and it will win him an Oscar later on. It's too bad his performance is wrapped around something so flat.
