I’m sorry folks, but I’m just sick to death of this genre of film. Everything has already been done at least twice, so until someone finds a new slant to the tale just stop. Slacker druggies (here Heath Ledger and Abbie Cornish) spend their time getting high and ruining their lives. Joy. Why should I care about two self-absorbed egomaniacs on smack? Any reason please? The acting is fine but there’s really no reason for this film except to show some beautiful people behaving monstrously to themselves and each other. Geoffrey Rush slums here in a supporting role as mentor, supplier, and enabler of the pair. It’s no Requiem for a Dream (it’s not even Requiem for Murder), in fact its a pretty boring nightmare full of people I’d rather see dead in a ditch than on screen …
