Trivia

According to the book "Robert Downey, Jr. - The fall and rise of the comeback kid", Mike Figgis and Robert Downey, Jr. met at Kate Mantilini's, a restaurant on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills, to discuss this movie. Downey arrived two hours late, barefoot, high, and carrying a purse with a gun sticking out of it. Figgis was shocked at first, but started a conversation anyway. Downey, who had lost a lot of weight because of his addiction, still expected to be offered the lead role of Max. Figgis offered him the part of Charlie, a man dying of A.I.D.S. instead. This in turn, gave Downey a shock, but after taking a good look in the mirror (and doing a line of coke) he decided to accept the part. See more »

A Great Movie
27 December 1998 | by Edgar-3See all my reviews

This is a great movie with amazing actors. One suggestion for all the people who give it a bad review: Rent the DVD and listen to the track with the directors commentary (the full length movie). What I read so far on reviews, including the official ones from all the Siskel and Eberts, they seem to misunderstand the movie. They are criticizing exactly what the director did on purpose. Watch the movie - watch the commentary version - watch the movie again. It is a great experience.
