Deep, cerebral, thought provoking study of human nature.
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.
