For anyone who hasn't seen this, you gotta. This is one of those gems that gets overlooked. Mathew Modine and Abel Ferrara are on great form. The story of a movie stars decline into hell. Thats a bit of a short description - im not too good at descriptions! Its basically the protagonists fall from grace, i guess, torn by a failed relationship with the character played by Beatrice Dalle (who is a great actress). Also, features a good acting performance by Dennis Hopper and Claudia Schiffer (who here makes her acting debut, if im correct). Its a real cracker of a movie. Independent movies at they're best. And for anyone not familiar with the director Abel Ferrara, you should definately check out some of his other films - a true master craftsman. Abel produces cinema with a soul. Definately check this film out.
