Jack Parsons grew up in poverty while suffering through childhood at the hands of an abusive, alcoholic father. Jack's brother-like bond with his wealthy neighbor Freddy, and his secret love for Anne the neighborhood beauty, were all that made life tolerable. Now at college, Jack attacks life with a vengeance. Fuelled by narcotics, alcohol, and a "can't lose philosophy", he runs with the popular crowd, pledges the school's most exclusive fraternity, and continues to pine for Anne even though he knows Freddy loves her. The drugs, booze and death defying initiation process cannot stop Jack, but a series of devastating blackouts that force him to question reality stagger Jack like a backhand smack from his old man and threaten to end his perfect life.

Who Cares ?
27 January 2014 | by caspian1978See all my reviews

You ever find yourself in a situation where you are listening to someone talk about a situation that happened to them? And somewhere in the middle of the story, you find yourself not only lost but bored beyond belief? If so, I know the reason why. It's because you don't care. This can be for a few different reasons. 1, the person telling the story doesn't know how to tell a story. 2, the story itself lacks an interest. Or 3, you don't care about the people in the story. When it comes to this movie, all three reasons stick out in my mind. Does the audience care about the people in the movie...no. We are introduced to several different characters, all lack a connection to someone in the general audience. Much of these people don't exist in our day to day lives. The audience has no one to connect to. It's hard to care about what happens to any of these people because we don't honestly feel for any of them. These are made up people in a made up school that are thrown into a situation no one cares about. With that said, the story, which borders on the horror / science fiction / paranormal / strange side of things falls short close to anything interesting because the audience doesn't care about the people in the situation. The weird plot only buries any other chance of the audience supporting the movie as anything interesting or entertaining. The final comparison to the lack of caring falls on the shoulders of the script and the direction. Was it just me or did it feel like the movie had 5 different Directors on it? Several scenes had different styles and themes making the movie not flow easily. You want to take your audience down a path to the final scenes in the movie. If they had different styles to confuse the audience because that was the idea, it fails miserably. Its not like you are trying to guess if this is a dream sequence or really happening, I think the movie had no idea what is was when they are trying to make it. The story itself has scenes that seem wrong for the overall plot. Are we suppose to laugh or find certain scenes smart when the overall theme is a struggle to understand reality? Are certain characters suppose to be there for comic relief but are later to be taken seriously, how does that work. I hate to be a hater but its hard to find any qualities in this movie to justify its existence. In the end, a Perfect Life is a terrible movie.
