The rewinds, split-screen sequence and speeded-up video diary of Victor's trip to Europe a set-piece as remarkable as any in Pulp Fiction make for an extremely self-conscious film language, but no more so than Ellis' prose. Both author and director relish a style that, like their characters, struts around like a peacock proudly drawing attention to itself.
As Sean, James Van Der Beek ruthlessly undermines his Dawson Creek image - almost the first time we see him he's in extreme close-up, his angry, red face straining during sex. Perhaps Sossamon and Somerhalder's characters elicit more sympathy than most Ellis creations, but they are far from innocent.
Fuck the Rules () - IMDb
Avary is not trying to paper over harsh truths: an edgy mood of coked-up tension ripples through his campus parties, which aren't fun events but stalking grounds for couples on the lookout for loveless sex. Maybe early on, the director encourages us to laugh at the characters' pretensions. But when real pain enters into the fray, it hits the audience like a kick in the teeth.
