Loosely connected stories capture a week in L.A. in 1983, featuring movie executives, rock stars, a vampire and other morally challenged characters in adventures laced with sex, drugs and violence.Written by
Amber Heard spent 45% of her entire performance completely nude. She said in an interview "I took on full nudity for that film because the script was based on (Bret Easton Ellis's) book and I wanted to represent the raw intensity, the important character aspects of what makes this story so dark and compelling and twisted," Heard explained. "I took a big risk and took a gamble and in this case I lost. The movie turned out to be a big flop." See more »
When Peter (Mickey Rourke) shows Jack (Brad Renfro) the child in the van, you can easily see a crew member through the front windshield looking in. He tries to get out of the way, but much too late. See more »
Acting was superb but the film was a LOT darker then I expected it to be. My expectations were way off going in. I thought it would be an upbeat film with some edgy scenes and instead I felt like I was living the roller-coaster life of an addict for 2 hours. I feel I am a pretty opened minded person but I think the sex and drugs were over the top and there was enough for 10 films put together. I would have liked to know the characters a little more. It would have been nice to have a little more dialog and less pulls from the bottle, hits form the bong, and group sex scenes. I never felt really connected to any of the characters and I only felt sad for them. I walked out of the theater feeling icky and little depressed so I would not see it again or recommend it.
