Looks like Tarantino ripped this little dance right out and popped it in Pulp Fiction

Where to begin with this one?I had to sit through this film about 8 years ago in college for film studies and dare i say i dozed off a few times through out.But on a second viewing I’d have to say that it’s still a stinker.It’s about a director making a science fiction film that also tells his life story : problems with the wife , affairs and poignant moments in his life as a kid.No one else is aware of this.As he tries to make the big budget film he invites his mistress and his wife to hang out with him during production.Bad idea.The film has tons of dream sequences and flashbacks in it.The last 15 minutes are probably the best bits.Not sure if it’s because of all the action or if you’re happy because you know the film is almost over.

IMDB RATING      –     8
