Addicted to Spun
21 July 2003 | by PeteGalloSee all my reviews

About a month ago my friend told me about this movie, after hearing about it on Late Night with Conan O'Brien or Carson Daly's show, which ever. So I went to the website and was immediately enamored. Being that it was not out in ANY theater within a 150 mile radius of me, I did what any blue blooded American would do. Download it. Unfortunately, I was only able to download the first half. Well, the first half kept me begging for more and for four weeks I waited for it to come out, watching the first half at least once a week. Today I finally purchased it, and I am not disappointed. Such an amazing movie should be up there with Requiem for a Dream and Trainspotting. If you can take a great dark comedy, go check it out. Get Spun.
