"... CONSIDER TRADE SCHOOL"


Roger Avary's "The Rules Of Attraction" is a look at the "experimentation" of college life. Alcoholism, drug abuse, suicide and sexual escapades.

That's not to say that the movie is all about--oh wait, it pretty much is. There are a few moments of outside "experimentation," but it is mostly a... read more

I don't know what I expected from this movie, but in my eyes it just wasn't that good. I'd probably forget all about it in a month if it wasn't for writing this review of my thoughts on it. It definitely had some funny parties, a great amount of nudity, and stays true to how college is like. It has its moments but just doesn't seem to hold together in my opinion. American Psycho is one of my favor... read more

The rules actually do not exist. All in your head. Nobody really knows anybody. So get real!

Description: Camden College. Sean Bateman (James Van Der Beek) is the younger brother of depraved Wall Street broker Patrick Bateman. He's also a drug dealer who owes a lot of money to "fellow" dealer Rupert Guest (Clifton Collins, Jr.), as well as a well-known womanizer, for he sleeps with nearly half of the female population on campus.

Viimeinen elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (309 movies items)

"21.8. (DVD) Fuck the Rules! Paikoin sekavan kerrontansa takia heikoksi vajoava leffa, mutta silti jotenkin arakimaisen mystisesti kiehtovaa kuvastoa. Nuoret eivät voi hyvin ja se on selvää. Oman käden kautta päädytään usein onneen, vaikka naimaankin päästän. Elokuva ei kuitenkaan onnistu käsittelemään samaan tapaan juppikuntien muodostumista kuin Amerikan Psyko. Ehkä tässä on ollut tarkoituksena jokin muu. Musiikit olivat kovaa kamaa."
