When Dan leaves the police station, he still has the fake coke with him. When police confiscate "unknown" substances (including breath mints and cigarettes), they do not return them. They claim to "destroy" such items ("for their protection"), so the likelihood that Dan would have it returned to him is Hollywood invention. See more »

astute and beautiful
12 July 2001 | by emacoSee all my reviews

This is a deeply insightful film that many people are probably not going to "get" fully, as evidenced by the other reviews here!

I almost didn't choose to watch this film, because I wasn't in the mood for another wild romp about decadence and the fun of partying. However, it doesn't merely follow the main character on a crazy night of adventures, but it shows how fate guides us down the proper path through those around us if we'll just listen. It's also a kick-ass love story.

The drugs issue in the movie is well done too, showing the good and bad sides of drug use and abuse. Some drug use can open up doors towards enlightenment (though the government doesn't want you to find that out) while an addiction to cocaine can become a life-wrecking nightmare.

The script is beautifully written, and even the most bizarre characters in the film are rendered with compassion and wit, each giving insight into another aspect of humankind. This film is definitely too literary and bizarre to be embraced by the American mass market, but I loved it.
