If you're looking for Edward Cullen here then don't buy this DVD. This is a stark study of a jaded, dissolute, overly rich young man who is bored with his life and the sycophants he needs but detests. This is not a movie to watch in part and then say you stopped watching because it was boring or whatever other emotion it inspires in you. It really is necessary to watch the entire movie to make a judgement. Although I would have preferred a more definitative ending, I have to say that I was enthralled by this man and his seemingly sad life. He had it all, materialistically but in the end, he had nothing. Great movie in my opinion.
Pretentious in in the extreme, just like the book on which it was based. It attempts satire, but all characters could be the same person (that's the satire!) just talk @ each other. 75% of the film is set in a Limousine. Conflict near non-existent, and the end is so flaccid it just beggars belief. One person in the cinema showing I attended snorted awake halfway through. Neat idea/ satirical concept boringly done; totally unrewarding. Cinema version was longer, so some must be cut
