Less Than ZeroDirector: Marek Kanievska, Andrew McCarthy, Jami Gertz, Robert Downey Jr.
This drama about affluent Los Angeles teens is taken from the novel by Bret Easton Ellis. Clay (Andrew McCarthy) is a college freshman who returns home during Christmas break. Clay's old flame Blair (Jamie Gertz) is now more interested in her new beau Julian (Robert Downey, Jr.), the fun-loving party boy with a penchant for drugs. While Clay tries to rekindle a thing with Blair, Julian becomes addicted to cocaine and starts freebasing. Julian's friends try halfheartedly to intervene, with no success. Soon he is so far in debt to drug dealer Rip (James Spader) that Julian becomes a male prostitute, whoring for enough money for his next fix. Michael Bowen co-stars with Tony Bill and Nicholas Pryor in this trip into the seamy world of darkness in sunny California.

a very good movie .
I watched this movie as a teenager and loved it so I had to buy it to watch again. Still great and I still cried even when knowing the ending. Robert Downey is just awesome and his life took some of the same roads his character took, but he's back and it's great to see how his life could have went, but didn't. If you like his new movies this is a must see. James Spader plays his bad drug dealer part great and Jami Gertz is my favorite female actor due to this movie and The Lost Boys. Andrew McCarty plays a great straight man. Timeless movie!
