Storyline

Ivan Beckman, Hollywood's most sought after talent agent, the darling and crown prince of La-La Land is dead. How and why did it happen? Was it drugs, murder or excess, or perhaps something altogether more mundane? We begin with an ending and then catapult back a number of days to the apex of Ivan's brilliant career as he bags international megastar Don West onto his company's books, and then charts the highs, lows (and they are so very low) and extreme excesses of his final days. Written by Sujit R. Varma

17 April 2004 | by TheLastMan81See all my reviews

I liked the storyline when a saw this movie at the bottom shelves, a behind-the-scenes look at the life in Hollywood, based on an old Tolstoy novel. But this must be one of the most crappy movies ever made, with it´s pretentious tone but total lack of talent. It tries to be ultra-realistic but fails totally on this point. If you want to make a movie as realistic and documentary-looking as possible, you should´nt use softening lenses and overdramatic music. It fails to be consistent and therefore it looks more like a porno flick then a serious drama. Speaking of porn, the acting is awful. The only one who really pulls through is Danny Huston as Ivan who really puts his soul out there. That´s about the only positive thing there is to say about this mess because the dialogue is terrible and the cinematography does´nt even exist. My hope in finding a brilliant exception at the bottom shelves in the videostore has been demolished.
