Surely...men would not fall for such a vacuous, ghastly woman?
It's easy to accept that Hollywood is corrupt and immoral - but, were all the men really that stupid?
The performances are good and it really does make for some uncomfortable viewing.
And...the kid deserved it. Ooops.
Are we not human? Not according to this.
Shocking stuff. Hey...it's Hollywood.
Life's flotsam and jetsam turn up at late 1930's Hollywoodland's door, once more, in this insightful tale of wannabes and desperadoes. Tod Hackett, artist, has inspirations to become noticed until he meets Faye Greener, blonde bombshell, and is immediately smitten. She has other ideas. She has Homer Simpson, victim, in her sights and cruelty and loneliness takes new meaning as all three are slowly sucked into the Hollywood system of sycophants, diggers and parasites, sucking the life from others as the life, and soul, is slowly sucked from them.
