The Dandy Warhols
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.

Ignore the distractions, just relax & enjoy this beautiful film
I could analyze this film as a critique of the American Dream and a very good one it is.
I could also point out the mass of very good social commentary and analysis of modern Western ethics.
And I'm sure the prudes will be put off by the very intimate sex scenes while the pervy types will be distracted from the story by them. So I could implore you not to let this happen and, instead, just allow these scenes to draw you into a feeling of intimacy with the characters.
I could also go on about how much the two lead actors must have put into this to bring their characters to life so vividly.
But instead I'll just say "Enjoy what is a very beautiful film on several levels".
btw I reserve 10 points for really, REALLY excellent films that stand out well above others. Otherwise I would have given this 10.
