Ari Rose (Adam Coleman Howard) is an actor and he is in Hollywood, but he seems to be the only one that notices this. Not exactly making a splash he is ready to be cast in anything, to do whatever it takes.
Then Helen Catherine (Anne Parillaud as seen in Nikita) walks into his line of fire and he is on a mission to make her his own. Using her flatmate Frieda (Amanda Plummer) he obtains her number and eventually her attention. Then in his excitement he strangles her. That does not stop him from moving her in, taking her out on dates and realising his romantic desires. Ari also has a therapist, Dr Dark (rivetingly played by Val Kilmer in gung ho mode) though he seems crazier that any of his clients.
What follows is a very funny and surreal adventure in necrophilia and the screen trade. Its absurdity carries the ring of truth. Hollywood has a fairground mirror held up to its less than perfect face.
Adam Coleman Howard in true indie auteur spirit, wrote directed and produced as well as starred in this debut feature. Although made several years ago legal wrangles have kept this film unseen from cinema audiences until now. CT
