This review is from: Gossip [DVD]  (DVD)
I try not to be too vituperative in my reviews but Gossip truly deserves it. It is, I think, perhaps the worst films I have ever seen and, a few attractive women aside, has no redeeming features at all. The worst thing is not that the plot is nonsensical, which it is, but that it thinks that its profound.
The main characters are three deeply unlovable media students who think that they are so very intellectual and sophisticated when of course they are just whiny, spolit brats. At least that part is true enough to life. Their supposedly exciting experiemnt is contrived beyond belief and the plot twists like a discarded hosepipe.
But this isn't what makes it so hateful, its the archness and pretension that saturates every shot as though all concerned routinely got tegether to congratualte themselves on how dmaned clever they all were. It is a film that, like its self obsessed and narcissistic protagnonists, is deeply in love with it self. It should take a long hard look in the mirror.
