The first part of the film, we meet "Carl," who has come to London to sort out his brother's belongings and also look into the death of his brother, who'd taken a drug-addled dive off a skyscraper during the night of a rave. He quickly meets his brother's girlfriend, and the two are instantly attracted to each other, as they unofficially date by having the excuse of bonding together in order to solve the mysteries of the departed "Justin's" life. In more than one way, Carl is intent on sorting out his brother's effects. What happens along the way is the suited well-coiffed Carl is liberated, at least for the time being, the excuse his willing seduction into the strobe-lit, drug and danced fueled world his brother frequented. He takes rather easily into this new lifestyle, enjoying his brother's expensive set of wheels and apartment, and is soon placated that his brother's death was an accident after all: He simply has new sensations and people on his mind now, and you can start worrying that he too might suffer a miserable end.
A highlight is the actor playing the cross-dressing "Michael" - who takes to Carl, and one can read attraction into it, as well as a certain fondness and also protectiveness, but nothing overt. The leading ladies are vying for Carl's affection as well, but are there ulterior motives in this? This is the kind of film where you can't take for granted what's at face value - or can you?
The standout is lead Matthew Rhys, in yet another accent by this Welshman, who is finally gaining some long overdue recognition in the States due to his co-starring role in the ABC series BROTHERS AND SISTERS.Read more ›

A movie with a plot and setting that had potential but which sadly deteriorated into a mini-me version of Dr. No. Tim Curry's evil bad guy character was comical. Read morePublished on December 6, 2008 by tuberacer
