This is a film about the exposition of vanity and the price people pay for fame, and this theme carries the story through all of its tragic intensities. It is a mature, edgy, dark piece of art. I love how visually spectacular every scene is.
You can tell they put a ton of effort into every set. I can't get over how aesthetically pleasing the film is. And Erika's acting was exceptional! Have been a fan of her since 2009 after watching 1 Litre of Tears (a Japanese live-action series), and she is no less amazing here even though the roles are worlds apart. In 1 Litre of Tears she played a sweet, strong optimistic girl battling a terminal disease. In Helter Skelter she plays an adored celebrity who behind the scenes is lost in a very dark place. There's a lot that can be learned from this film.
