Okay, this is one of the freakiest, most nightmarish portrayals of an actor's life that you can imagine. I cannot get this film out of my head. It is quiet, it is spare, it is hopeless - and yet I could not look away; I had no idea what would come next (and I hate that people seem to WANT to always know in a film what's going to happen next). There are a handful of films that successfully portray the nightmare of Hollywood (Phantom of the Paradise, Sunset Blvd, Mulholland Drive, Barton Fink) and OK, GOOD deserves to be on that list. To say what it is NOT would spoil it, this is a unique sort of film experience; and oh, amidst the icy tension of it all it has a couple of genuine big laughs (but that might just be my sick sense of humor). I highly recommend this one if you are looking for something different. Very different, deliciously weird, and only frightening because it is so real.
