My favorite scenes are obnoxious Richard at the restaurant, Sean's excuse to Lauren for sleeping with her friend, the guy going on a debauched trip across Europe and his weird face to face moment with Lauren and the hospital scene.
This is a movie that isn't for everyone. Its a black comedy, but its peopled with strange characters and scenes that will stay with you long after. I loved it!
On the other hand, this is also a dark, pessimistic film with very little hope in store for its characters. Here, we follow three young people who live their College years through drugs, parties and sex. They are all without an identity, all without a life so to speak. The only thing they love is feeling sorry for themselves and making everything seem worst than it is.
You can't care for these characters in a way that other movies will make you care. And yet, you can't help but feel sorry for this lot of blinded kids. They are so enthralled with their own little world that they forget about everything else that surrounds them in reality.
This is not a movie for that faint of hearts. But this little piece of cinematic genius (some of the shots are so brilliantly done they left me totally speachless) deserves to be seen by a wider audience. If only people could open up and admire something that is this dark and yet so extremely funny, they would discover a whole new cinematic world.
i looked forward to the dvd release, and i was excited to hear about the bounty of commentary tracks on the disc -- commentaries are one of my favorite parts of dvd's. i was disappointed to find out that the "surprise guest" commentary track was from carrot top -- he's never been a favorite of mine, and his track is actually fairly boring...it's just him seemingly watching the movie for the first time and making occasional comments.
the other commentaries are more interesting, but i found them a bit unsettling. for a movie that was nominated for a GLAAD media award there is a surprising amount of homophobia, particularly from ian somerhalder. he talks repeatedly about how uncomfortable he was with the scenes involving male-male contact. it really gets to the point where you just want to tell him "ok, ian, we get it...you're not gay." another commentator talks about how ian is as beautiful on the inside as he is on the outside, but that's certainly not the impression i get from him.
that said, there is a lot of interesting information in the commentaries from other actors and technical experts. put together, the tracks give a good sense of relatively-low-budget movie production.
