Editorial Reviews

The title refers to the twenty something ruling underbelly of Los Angeles. A stylish film hailed as a 21st Century 'Less Than Zero'. Follow this acutely knowing mood piece, as it charts a deceptively languid week in which Hollywood youngster, Charlie Fox (Gummersall) faces the unraveling of his life. Featuring formidable performances from Devon Gummersall, Arly Jover, Eion Bailey and Leslie Bibb. Quietly shocking.

I read somewhere how this movie is compared to Less than Zero - definitely no comparison. Less than Zero really delved into the lives of young adults, drug addiction and personal struggles in a very genuine and creatively wonderful way. Young Unknowns is very predictable with terrible acting. It is like watching young people clearly making stupid choices for the sake of making stupid choices - no substance to any of the characters. Charlie and his friend, "act black", use drugs, disrespect women and are just extremely unlikable and stupid characters. You don't see anything beneath the surface on these character have no redeeming qualities. You dislike them from the beginning and really end up hoping they get what they deserve in the end. Not sure why this movie was made - one of the worst movies I've seen in MANY years. PLEASE do not compare it to Less than Zero - that movie was a great 80's classic.

This movie earned it's stars - for storyline, acting, and cinematography. This independant film is bound for cultdom. Charlie, the main character, is a kind of spoilt, fast-talking, Beverly hills kid bullshitter, which made me think "gimme a break" in the first few minutes of the movie, but as his more somber, alcoholic (and attractive) girlfriend comes into the picture, trying to figure out how much of his [...] she can take, you begin to feel it's not going to be superficial after all. And it isn't! The movie never preaches, it's got a hard edge, and it's not a "Hollywood film", though we surely learn something by the end of the movie (the hard way, of course). This film moves at a very quick and engaging pace, the acting is dead on, and it packs a wallop in the end! The fast-talking, realistic dialogue between these jaded characters and the very recognizable elements within both them and the story, will [...] you in from the get-go and take you on a wild, and horrific, ride! It creeps up on you.. Look out!
