Toback spices his Altmanesque style of restless camera work and impressionistic intercutting with attitude, nervous energy, and in-your-face sex. There's an interesting story to be told here, but the provocative cultural mix gets lost in the self-conscious melodrama and only periodically roars to life, notably in the edgy, unpredictable scenes with Mike Tyson (an inspired bit of casting that works marvellously). Also featured are rapper Raekwon, supermodel Claudia Schiffer, Brooke Shields, and Robert Downey Jr. --Sean Axmaker, Amazon.com

James Toback has delivered an audacious & fiercely intelligent dissection of the racial divide in America today. Hopefully it'll find an apprecitive audience in years to come- which is doubtful in a world raised on the lightweight notions of Hollywood.
