Storyline

Bill was a golden boy of the banking industry. Living the good life in Los Angeles, he had a nice house, a good job, and a loving wife. And then he got greedy, lost everything, and was sentenced to an eight-year prison term. Instead of giving up his freedom, he jumps bail. While in hiding, his former driver Luis finds him and offers to get him out of the country. But Bill must hole up for a few days more before the truck will leave. Luis brings Bill to Eddie's, a cheap Central American dive in downtown LA. There, Bill meets Angela, a free spirited Latina. Bill has been on the run for weeks; he's depressed and suicidal. Angela offers to take him in when she discovers he has nowhere to go. Bill had always succeeded when he focused on the future, but finds himself at loose ends with the present. He was always concerned with the next big sale, buying a bigger house, a bigger car. He never learned to stop and enjoy the moment. His ambition and his desire for more power and money is what ...

Bill: You know, when I was a teenager, we used to say, "Life's a bitch and then you die." I guess I'm beginning to understand what it means.
Angela: Well, we say the same thing, but at the end we had it, so fuck the bitch.

Finally -- gratification for the libido and the mind!
17 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at a film festival in L.A. in a packed theater and I can definitely say that it captured everyone's attention. What really struck me was that once the movie had ended and everyone had exited the theater, it seemed like it took people a few minutes to face each other out in the light realizing that they had just spent the last hour and a half in a dark room with a lot of strangers watching a lot of sex on the big screen and then . . . this frenzy just broke out and we were all talking about how hot the movie was and discussing (and a lot of people downright arguing) whether or not this has crossed the line with regard to what should be allowed on a movie screen. It was pretty fun to watch people get so charged up. It's not like this is the first time a film has pushed boundaries sexually (I'm thinking "9 Songs") but I'd say this one takes it to a new level. Instead of sex inter-cut with concert footage, though, this movie balances sex with cerebral dialog so it actually appeals to both the libido and the mind (that's not a combination I see very often). Great date movie for sure! Especially if you're dating somebody with a brain (although frankly, even if you're not, I think they'll be . . . how should I put it . . . "inspired" by this one). All in all, this is a passionate movie about life and the state of the world in which we live. Pretty timely, actually. It's worth seeing with a date and then going to dinner afterward for some heated discussion – guaranteed! Or . . . just skipping dinner altogether. Check it out if you can.
