A film of many great moments and wondrous stylistic quirks that manages to pull them all together, yet still feels incomplete and lacking focus. Partly my fault because I saw cool ideas and started thinking of how they could be used for is something much more personal and low key, which is the opposite of what this film is trying to do. It's using the disconnect of the characters to examine excess and social relationships on a broad impersonal scale, and I think it does that well.

Starts out strangely, strikingly beautiful, especially the beguiling sequence before the credits, but it kind of flattens out and gets muddled over its running time, and ends up hinging on an underdeveloped relationship that I just couldn't bring myself to care about, between two characters both played by charisma-vacuums (though Sossamon has an amazing laugh, and Van der Beek does a good Kubrick glare). Loses a lot of its initial energy, but still overall a pretty enjoyable experience.

This is like the halfway house film with the direction (in both definitions) descending from American Psycho towards The Canyons. Overall, it felt like an array of hyper emotional Americans killing themselves too eagerly on vice. Somerhalder and Van Der Beek could have easily swapped roles. Somerhalder might have have pulled off a Bateman brother with the right direction. Highlight being the whisked trip through Europe.

Certainly not for everyone. Rules is void of morals and restraint. But it's also a top adaptation of Ellis' book, and is filmed with such pure cinematic flair, that it's hard to look away from. Even if you may want too. It also features several of the most underrated performances, especially that of James Van Der Beek, the magical Shannyn Sossamon, and a scene-stealing Russell Sams. (NC-17- graphic content throughout incl. sex, nudity, drug/alcohol abuse, language and disturbing violent images)

Entertaining enough adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis drug-and-dropouts original. At turns stylish and exciting or droll and vacuous, just like the students themselves - entirely intended, but it does mean that, in the end, there's not much being said and nothing at all to care about (this is also the point) (but really, there is no point). In that final sense, the film is a success. Avary showed a lot of promise with this, and it definitely has its moments. Make more films!
