A poet falls in love with an art student who gravitates to his bohemian lifestyle -- and his love of heroin. Hooked as much on one another as they are on the drug, their relationship alternates between states of oblivion, self-destruction, and despair.
Heath Ledger was the director's only choice for the role of Dan.
The world is very bewildering to a junkie.
When Dan is sitting in the shower, the tattoo (which was real and was blacked out for some reason - it is actually a cluster of planets) on his shoulder smudges and transfers to the shower tile. The next scene it is intact.
