Storyline

Desire and addiction form the confluence of bad choices and unintended consequences for Veronica Lambert. Her desperation to see her desires fulfilled is palpable as she acclimatizes to big city life, while assuaged by the good intentions of Mr. New York, an old-time movie hustler who befriends the new arrival to the Hollywood scene. Her interest in true love and naivete in life becomes fodder for her married lover, who ultimately seduces her into a criminally-sociopathic and brutal act. Similar to Crash or Pulp Fiction, each character's progressively egocentric motives juxtapose one another, form a cross-hatch of competing elements to complicate and in the end, clarify the outcome of a long path toward betrayal and loss. Veronica's harsh life in Hollywood starts in a small town with a desire for love and attraction in the big city, when fuelled by competing passions, destiny rapidly leads to a turnstile of disingenuous friends and drugs, overshadowed by the sexual and narcissistic ...

A group of young people who lives overlap in sinister situations of greed, selfishness and sociopath characters.
9 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

How do movies like this get made.I thought the film was being ironic and then I realized this soulless work was serious. OMG the writing was nearly as bad as the acting. There was nothing that made me feel any of the characters were human. Nothing redemptive no arc no aspects of what we all recognize in ourselves. The costumes were great and some of the music was well done but honestly whoever made this has some serious issues. A lot was taken from Brett Easton Ellis but Less than Zero personified a pariah in our culture and did it stylishly well. This did not have the depth the insight or the existential aspect of alienation. This film left me angry for giving it a shot and feeling as empty as the narrative.
