This review is from: Luster (DVD)
From the looks of it, this was shot in 16mm, but the graininess and grittiness work just fine with the script. The characters are fleshed-out for the most part and the acting and direction are satisfying. The script is often a bit silly, and these 20-somethings seem to have suffered an arrest of emotional development somewhere around the age of 13, although on some level, most are endearing in a twisted way and you really find yourself liking most of them. There's a bit of gratuitous violence, nudity, substance abuse, sex - the usual stuff - but the pace never flags. Some of the situations are pretty much beyond the pale, but employing a little suspension of disbelief, the viewer will probably find him/herself enjoying the ride.
I'd suggest renting this one before purchasing it.
