The Informers Clip 4
In such works as Ã¢ÂÂLess Than ZeroÃ¢ÂÂ and Ã¢ÂÂAmerican PsychoÃ¢ÂÂ Brett Easton Ellis brilliantly dissects contemporary American society, a culture in which too much is never enough. Now, adapting his own acclaimed novel for the screen, he returns to the Los Angeles of the early 1980Ã¢ÂÂs with a multi-strand narrative that deftly balances a vast array of characters who represent both the top of the heap (a Hollywood dream merchant, a dissolute rock star, an aging newscaster) and the bottom (a voyeuristic doorman, an amoral ex-con). Connecting all his intertwining strands are the quintessential Ellis protagonistsÃ¢ÂÂa group of beautiful, blonde young men and women who sleep all day and party all night, doing drugsÃ¢ÂÂand one anotherÃ¢ÂÂwith abandon, never realizing that they are dancing on the edge of a volcano. Filmed with uncommon glamour and grit by acclaimed Australian director Gregor Jordan (Ã¢ÂÂNed Kelly,Ã¢ÂÂ Ã¢ÂÂBuffalo SoldiersÃ¢ÂÂ), Ã¢ÂÂThe InformersÃ¢ÂÂ is an alternately blistering and chilling portrait of hedonism run amuck. Starring: Billy Bob Thornton, Kim Basinger, Mickey Rourke, Winona Ryder, Amber Heard, Rhys Ifans, Brad Renfro, Jon Foster.
