A Rare TreatBy willandgracefan from Lincs , 04 Jan 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Roger Avary delivers a stunning piece of cinema that faithfully follows Brett Easton Ellis's "unfilmable" book.
A disjointed look at american college life today and the disatisfaction today's youth have with life.
James Van Der Beek throws Dawson Leary to the wolves and comes out all guns blazing, proving to the world that underneath the pretty boy looks is a talent to watch and enjoy for years to come.
Employing every film school technique Avary can remember, but never to the detriment of the actual film, this is a highly recommended movie and a must for anyone sick of big budget "thrill rides" that end up leaving you cold. Enjoy!

Awful ...By a customer , 12 May 2013Turned off after 5 mins and glad I did by the looks of other reviews ... wouldn't want my kids being influenced by this horridness
Intriguing Teenage Angst!By Brighouse1971 (155 reviews) from Brighouse, WY , 17 Jun 2011This movie is definitely not an easy viewing experience!
Its starts quite confusing and a bit erratic but if you keep watching you will get into those incredible characters and even start to think about the WHAT IF's.
I especially love the fact that it has an open / undisclosed ending, which will keep your mind racing for your own conclusion.
Plus the fact that this movie captures the teenage angst and hormone-laden feelings of those teenage characters with such intensity, that it makes you wonder and cry at the same time and reminiscent on your own time in school / college.
Party, Sex, Booze, Dope, Sex, Sex, Sex!
okay but not for meBy a customer from KIDDERMINSTER , 04 Dec 2010This definitely a film for mature teenagers despite being well made and presented it is either a film you love or hate, but not for me.There was no real storyline a such just sex fast forwarding or rewind sex.Not even very funny.Sorry.
Fear and loathing....By Karen931 (212 reviews) from Edinburgh , 22 Nov 2010The biggest battle of this film is with yourself to decide if you should just turn it off majority of the way through!! You keep watching to find out what will actually happen to the characters, but you know there wont be anything worth your own perseverance!! You don't really get to know the characters, so no feeling of empathy really develops and the level of interest never really gets going! It tries really hard but doesn't really get anywhere.......
Rules of AttractionBy a customer from London , 21 Sep 2010A first for me, after 5 minutes into the film I thought about turning it off. Wish I had. Unpleasant.
