I'd never heard of this film but bought it second hand on the off chance it might be good - and it was. Both I and my flat mate both enjoyed it immensely from the offset.
Seriously, from the opening scene we were like: "This looks good. Let's just hope it can keep it up." And it did.
Funny, stylish, a great musical score, creative direction, naked chicks, drugs, brilliant characters and amazing acting - I mean what more do you want?
Mickey Rourke is great in it as ''The Cook'' and the sadly demised Brittany Murphy looks stunning (in a trashy sort of way) and gives a sterling performance - just one of many by the films cast, because seriously, every actor in the film did a great job!
This film is über, über cool and I agree with another review I saw briefly on here: Cult Classic!! It simply screams cult classic!! That's immediately what I thought when I'd watched it. Sadly with Brittany's death the film looks even more qualified to earn that title one day.
For some reason, not many people have heard of this film and I take great pleasure in looking like a top film boffin when I put them onto a great little flick which they all really enjoy watching. It really is very good and if you're into cinematography, screen writing, directing or film making of any kind - I think you'll really, really, really enjoy this little gem for the creative way it's been shot.
So what are you waiting for: If sex, drugs and rock'n'roll are your thing - okay maybe not rock'n'roll - but if sex, drugs, comedy, creativity and great acting are your thing, then click buy because you're gonna love this title.
Please mark this review as helpful if you found it to be and if not, please comment on why so I can do a better job for you next time. Thanks: )
