Storyline

Inspired by true events, L.A., I HATE YOU intertwines three tales of sex, violence, redemption, murder and unthinkable twists all taking place in the City of Angels; Los Angeles. When a desperate husband suddenly regrets the hit he has ordered on his handicapped wife, he frantically attempts to stop the murder. However, this sets in a motion a series of events far greater than he can control for the lives of some seemingly unconnected people, including an action star wannabe, a frustrated family man, and a guilt-ridden boyfriend. Starring Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Halloween), William Forsythe (The Devil's Rejects) and Dedee Pfeiffer (Vamp), L.A., I HATE YOU will lead you on a wild and steamy ride through the seedy and visceral streets of LA, where broken dreams are the daily reality...

Quite a low budget effort
12 March 2012 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Quite a strangely interesting movie right from the slick title sequence to the first scenes introducing some pretty seedy characters who meet with midget prostitutes in between airport and meeting their buddies for the first time after years of prison.

At first the movie looks like a disjointed anthology because the 3 stories at first seem unconnected but much in a Innaritu style of storytelling get intertwined in a pretty unexpected finale with a depressing outcome.

The whole thing has grimy base starting with a guy meeting his uncle coming from jail and basically making him cheat on his wife with a waitress he is attracted to while his uncle seems to go on with his criminal lifestyle. As you can guess, this ends badly yet you don't know whats going on. Next segment deals with a man and his paraplegic girlfriend who is lured in by his best friend to a night with coke and hookers. This ends equally bad as the first but right when you think the infidelity theme is a red thread the last segment branches off. It deals with an actor out of luck but offered a role in a big action movie if he dares to kill for the role... literally.

This is where it all comes together (well, unfortunately not all of it because a lot is just hinted to) in a finale that knows no winners and doesn't even shy from incorporating aliens in the plot.

Its a well made low budget movie that sure has some flaws in the script and the production (many green screen scenes look unrealistic, yet now in a obvious bad way) but manages to keep your interest with the storytelling that moves left and right and the whole seedy strange look.

I liked it despite of the flaws. It seems to be a made for TV movie, so in this case they sure did a good job here. Watch this if you are in the mood for a dark and mysterious B-drama.
