It's hard to fathom why this totally character and actor driven movie from the past that has no action sequences or special effects warranted a release on Blu-ray, but here it is anyway. The three main actors in the film carry it entirely on their shoulders as there are really no one else on film except for them.
Two girls, Carla (Heather Graham – The Hangover, Boogie Nights) and Lou (Natasha Gregson Wagner – High Fidelity, Lost Highway), meet while waiting outside a building for their boyfriends. As the conversation between the two go on they realize that they are waiting for the same guy. Blake (Robert Downey Jr. – Chaplin, Iron Man) has told each of them that he loves them…and only them. He has been leading this double life for several months. Angry at Blake the two girls break into his loft and sit there waiting for an explanation from Blake. Blake returns to the loft and some explanations are expected of him.
Sex has a paramount place in out society and this film addresses that. But you have to remember that the film, in its essence, is not about sex. Rather it is about loyalty, honesty and forgiveness. That they are important facets to all relationships is focused on.
Shot in real time with totally improve dialogue kudos have to go to the three actors for sustaining the interest. The film is really one big long scene, but it doesn't drag as long as you are into that kind of thing. It is slow, but a realistic slow if you know what I mean.
The three actors do a good job, but once again Robert Downey Jr. distinguishes himself by turning in another spot on performance. The guy has an amazing amount of talent.
