Los Angeles, 1958: a detective holes up in a downtown hotel awaiting killers to come get him. During the course of one night he will meet various occupants of the hotel and the truth of how... See full summary »
A serpentine day in the life of ten seemingly disparate women: a porn star, a flight attendant, a psychiatrist, a masseuse, a bartender, a pair of call girls, etc. All of them with one crucial thing in common. Trouble.
A dentist teams up with a feisty would-be assassin to put the final touches on the plan to kill his wife. Once he makes a play for the assassin's payment, he unknowingly sets off a chain of events that fuels a cross-town journey through the many lounges, bars, strip clubs and the occasional nudist ping pong club scattered across Los Angeles. Along the way, we are introduced to a series of idiosyncratic characters, from gangsters to exotic dancers, from ex-cons to cops, with the odd hatcheck girl and bartender thrown in for good measure.

I, I'm sorry, I'm waiting for someone.
Uh, under normal circumstances, I'd never turn you away, but this is a business meeting.
What kind of business are you in?
Um, I work in real estate, corporate real estate.

Wow, you can't even tell me your name?

This is not a movie that is artistic, witty, or clever. Essentialy, what we have here, is a toned down, chicken soup for the young adult female soul version of American psycho type narrative. I really dislike how they stereotype left and right about men. It is really cold, and shows a lack of sensitivity to the feminine side of man, which is, and should always be, part of art, just as the masculine side of woman is as well. I really feel that this movie could have been great, but falls short, in an effort to cash in on advertising revenue. The same thing the movie critisizes it uses to get views. Insane? Not according to the producers, who obviously wrote this short nothing in a few weeks.
Sorry, but this gets an official alien 300 thumbs down.
Do your self a favor, and just rent Total Recal.
