Great story. The thirst for fame sometime leads to the end of the tunnel.
My father always told me Hollywood is the end of the tunnel. I wasn't quite sure what he meant, but after watching this film, I got the visualization of what he meant quite clear. This is a FANTASTIC film. Not sure why the negative reviews. Its a very engaging story with lots of heart and raw emotion plastered on the screen. It tackles many subject matters and does so masterfully. The titled is perfect and demonstrates a variety of emotions actors go through in their quest to attain a carrer as a working actor. John De Luca is quite a talent to watch. Apparently he had many hats in this film. His acting is magnetic, raw and just perfect. This man can carry a film like a champ. I could not stop watching him nor could I guess all the twist and turns the film was going to take. Its a wretched world out there where only the strong survives. In the entertainment industry, and for all aspiring actors, the stakes are twice as high as its a very unpredictable career choice. Both protagonist realize this during their respective journeys. And I say their respective journeys, because even tho the film starts out with both men looking out for each other, life has other plans for them. This film, even tho not quite the same, reminded me of another film from the 80's called "Less Than Zero" similar premise, but this film goes far beyond the other one. I HIGHLY recommend this film. The performances, story, cinematography, overall production is very good. The film will take you for a ride no doubt. I'll keep my eye peeled for John De Luca. He's got movie star written all over him and a very engaging presence. I did not know what I was getting myself into when I saw this film, but I'm so happy I saw it and I strongly recommend anyone thinking about giving this film a chance, to give it a go and let the film take you on its journey. Its a rocky road, but a very satisfying one.
