Time Out says

Tarantino's former writing partner belatedly follows up Killing Zoe with this coldly virtuoso tour de indulgence (if you will), taken from Bret Easton Ellis' college campus 'satire', which tracks three materially pampered lovelorn cynics through one winter's party circuit. A little like Gaspar Noé's Irreversible, it flips the time-line, though in a more bite-sized way, running sequences backwards for the hell of seeing vomit retreat into a mouth, as much as for any interrogative purpose. Also it has the same technical fizz, if not the wit of Fight Club. The leads and their accomplices look dead glam, but it's never clear whether their vacuity is a deliberate strategy. Certainly Avary's style seems all for instant gratification.

my favourite film, a deeply underrated classic of modern american cinema, dont dismiss it just because you were maybee offended by it and if you havent seen it do so right now, also its not just a dark and ferocious film, its also a cocktail of fun, emotion, comedy, shocking moments and great characters (why i dont here more people walking around at parties shouting "its dick!" ill never know) its the ultimate party film, especialy with its comedown in mood after the suicide scene, were reality sudenly hits you and the characters in the face.This masterfull film also contains a hell of a lot of stand out classic scenes, its pretty much made up of them.
