Pretty cracked. This movie did well in that it made you feel like you were on meth amphetamine. Fairly disjointed narrative. The cinematography was pretty original, but it just came across as overly ambitious and erratic. The only genuinely believable and likeable character was Nicki, and even then they didn't explore her full potential.
Yuck! I've seen hundreds of films and have, quite honestly, only truly disliked a handful of them. This is one of them. I have a pet peeve for films that focus on the extreme aspects of life when it's the ordinary things that are often the most interesting. Not that all films have to be relatable, but films that are simply about drugs and whores and psychopaths and nothing else tend to bore me to death.
One of the movies you add to your que out of curiosity then forget about till it arrives. I didn't dislike the film as much as others but it was pretty irritating. I didn't feel there was a lot of insight to drug use, it felt more like exploitation some have offered up the idea that it's actually satire but if so that was lost on me. Schwartzman and Murphy bring some nice pathos though. Has redeeming qualities.
