Rules of Attraction

I think Roger Avary's film adaptation of Brett Easton Ellis's "The Rules of Attraction" is just a fucking gem. Totally missed it in theaters, discovered it on DVD.

The thing's overstuffed with film geekery. The kind of film that invites you to rewind certain scenes just to get a closer look, like trying to figure out how a magic trick is done.

It's got one of the most beautiful suicide scenes I've ever seen.

Here's a good article from the AV Club, on the cult status of the film.

Jesus, I'd like to see Avary's "Glitterati".
