Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - allmovie.com - myspace.com - efilmcritic.com - metacritic.com - film.com - slashfilm.com - rottentomatoes.com - en.wikipedia.org: «The film is based on Ellis' 1994 collection of short stories of the same name. The film, which is set amidst the decadence of the early 1980s, depicts an assortment of socially alienated, mainly well-off characters who numb their sense of emptiness with casual sex, alcohol, and drugs. Filming took place in Los Angeles, Uruguay, and Buenos Aires. It was the last film for actor Brad Renfro before his death on January 15, 2008 at the age of 25. The film was dedicated to his memory. An article published by Reuters described the story as "seven stories taking course during a week in the life of movie executives, rock stars, a vampire and other morally challenged characters", set in 1980s Los Angeles. The supernatural content was not to be included in the final film, however. The movie opens in 1983 at an elegant Los Angeles party at a mansion attended by a good-looking, well-off young crowd. Amidst the pulsing dance music and free-flowing alcohol and drugs, a young man, Bruce, wanders away from the party. As he steps out onto the street in front of the mansion, he is killed by a speeding car. After the funeral, his friends Graham, Martin and Tim appear indifferent as they sit drinking on a fancy hotel patio afterwards. Only Raymond is truly devastated by the accident, and he cries bitterly. The friends dismiss Raymond's tears and urge him to accept that nothing can be changed about the death. Graham seems to feel a little more for Raymond's pain, so that when Raymond leaves, crying, and goes to be alone, Graham follows him. The friends joke that Raymond, who is the most distraught of all of the friends about the death of Bruce, is crying about a man who hated him».
