Overview

A spoiled L.A. trust-fund kid discovers that his actress girlfriend is having a fling with her ex-flame, and subjects them both to a series of twisted mind games that spiral out of control in this erotically charged neo-noir thriller from director Paul Schrader and writer Bret Easton Ellis. In order to keep his trust fund intact and his influential father out of his business, bored rich kid Christian real-life porn star James Deen finances an independent horror film, with his assistant Gina Amanda Brooks serving as producer. Christian's girlfriend Tara Lindsay Lohan, a former aspiring actress, is assisting with casting duties when her former boyfriend Ryan Nolan Funk emerges as the frontrunner to star in the film. At first Christian and Gina fail to recognize the romantic spark between Tara and Ryan -- the lusty remnants of a passionate fling from three years ago. But eventually, sleuthing Christian rightly discerns that Tara has taken him for a fool, and that the two former lovers are conducting an affair right under his nose. Driven by an insatiable thirst for vengeance, controlling Christian soon begins subconsciously tormenting them both until the psychological suffering becomes too great to bear, and the situation erupts into violence. Gus Van Sant co-stars.

    This was a great movie that reminded me of a 70's classic! Not much of a big "Hollywood" production but more of a character study on the lifestyles of young people in Los Angeles.
