13-year-old Sinikka vanishes on a hot summer night. Her bicycle is found in the exact place where a girl was killed 23 years ago. The dramatic present forces those involved in the original case to face their past.
Kyle Peoples never wanted to be the man he has become in his 30s, an accountant stuck in a dead end job, with a lover who is more successful than he and a family that doesn't get him at all. So when a night of partying leads to a new family of friends and fun, Kyle sees an opportunity for escape from reality. But Kyle's new friendship with Maia and Dusty and the trio's love of crystal meth eventually cost Kyle his job, his companion, his home and his family. Kyle's escape becomes his trap, the party is an illusion and the crystal is slowly killing him, physically and psychologically. When he finally bottoms out and is no longer the young man his father once boasted about with pride, Kyle must choose: life or meth. Written by
Started out okay with Lukas Haas trying out something really different to his previous characters he's played playing an effeminate gay man and managing pretty good at avoiding to look as a stereotype.
But it gets fairly obvious fairly soon that the plot really isn't gonna go anywhere.
I kept looking at the time-bar to see how much more of this I had to take unfortunately most times it seemed like far too much so I actually ended up putting the laptop on and multitasking cause it was just a hassle to just sit and watch this film which boring is a understatement.
So felt a bit cheated as there is some obvious manipulation of the rating system. 49.8 % of the (current) ratings are 10/10. If you watch this movie you will undoubtedly see that no sane person (who wasn't involved with the film) would rate this a 10/10 which is the masterpiece rating.
And if you look at the other raving reviews you'll see that not a lot of them have rated many other (if any) films than this one, and 2 of them that have have only rated and raved about one other movie and that is 'Crazy Bitches' another movie by the same director as this.
These are typical signs of a fraudulent rating, so that is why it's currently so high. If you take away all the 10's which are arguably fake the rating would end up being something like 4.0/10 and not the current 6.7/10 and that's a far more reasonable rating for it.
The soundtrack was alright though so there's always that.
