continuing the Bret Easton Ellis theme from last time, i reached back a few years to this one. kind of like the sequel to Less Than Zero, there are a lot of similar personalities, themes and even re-appearing characters (or mentions of them), which i always love. but as the credits rolled, i honestly had no idea what i’d just watched. need to head back to the bookshelf and re-read. as i recall, the book is a collection of interwoven short stories, which is probably why the movie version is so confusing. it’s really hard to include the level of detail and background necessary for total clarity in 90 minutes. that said, i still enjoyed the hell out of it.
