Strange and often hilarious film with a great cast, Johnny Depp,Vincent Gallo, Fay Dunaway, Jerry Lewis and Lili Taylor, can't go wrong with that. Depp is pretty fantastic in this role, actually playing a straight character in a weird movie, scenes between him and Dunaway are pretty great but I think overall the cast gel pretty well. Story is off the wall, and I really love how its directed. 8.5/10
