Los Angeles, a community of artists, bohemians, homeless people, drug
addicts, where everyone is disconnected from one another. Here it's no
problem for a group of women to seduce and drug men without anybody ever really
noticing, and bring their
bodies to a mad scientist (Jed Rowen). But when one of the scientist's girls turns against him and he
has to kill and replace her, the new girl, shocked by the whole thing,
blows his operation wide open. Somehow, a pair of angels also figure in
this story, but don't ask me how.
To be quite honest, this is a
piece of crap. It's an attempt to make an art movie by presenting the
audience with artsy images, by trying to capture some sort of verité
style by letting the actors and actresses improvise their dialogue, by
stufing the soundtrack with avant garde music (some even good), by a
deliberate shifting from black and white to colour to a weird (but
good-looking) hybrid, and by using interview snippets with (supposedly)
interesting people. Thing is of course that artsy doesn't equal art, the
improvised dialogue is pretty lame, the shifting between colour and black
and white is without rhyme or reason, the interview snippets are pretty
pointless, the film takes pretty much forever to tell its feeble and very
trashy story, and worst of all, the whole thing is so goddam boring -
there's nothing happening here, nothing at all.
