Loosely connected stories capture a week in L.A. in 1983, featuring movie executives, rock stars, a vampire and other morally challenged characters in adventures laced with sex, drugs and violence. Written by
Because Los Angeles has changed so much between the mid 1980's and 2008, and because filming there was so expensive, most of the film was made in Montevideo, Uruguay, which boasted enough locations and resources to recreate 1980's LA at a lower cost. See more »

OK, so I can see a lot of negative reviews for this movie, some people giving it only 1 star which is clearly not a fair review but some sort of angry attack. Firstly this is not a typical style of movie. It is much more in the art house genre, with glimpses in to lives, rather than a clear cut story all nicely played out, like so many predictable, pretentious movies. The stories are all very interesting, as well as very original in an era of highly borrowed themes. This is one movie that really draws the viewer in with great atmosphere, incredible cast, great soundtrack and cool locations. I think this movie will probably only appeal to a mature audience, and I don't mean age mature. The best way to view this movie is to really chill and don't be expecting some sort of standard formula. Do this and it will really draw you in to some unusual moments of emotional intrigue.
