"... 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.

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.

American Psycho is one of my favor... read more

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. Lauren Hynde (Shannyn Sossamon) is, technically, a virgin. She's saving herself for her shallow boyfriend, Victor Johnson (Kip Pardue), who's left the States to backpack across Europe. Her slutty roommate, Lara (Jessica Biel), has the hots for Victor as well. Paul Denton (Ian Somerhalder), who used ... (more)

Viimeinen elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (402 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."
