VincentVendetta's rating of the film Her Smell

It's a relentless, claustrophobic, schizophrenic bad trip - a faithful rendition of what being around Courtney Love feels like. One doesn't quite know what to make of it; it is never sadistic or cynical, more nerve-wracking than truly despicable, and there have never more beautiful women with acne and bad hairdoos. But when it becomes Gus Van Sant's Last Days for 20 minutes, it just sweeps everything else aside.
