i didn't love it or hate it & i detest courtney love. as others have said, sutherland was just not right, & neither was courtney. not only do they look NOTHING like the people they are portraying, but they didn't seem to embody any of their attributes. it isn't a film i would watch again. it just seems hollow. like an introduction to what could have been a compelling story with no meat to it. it probably sounds like i hated it, but i just feel nothing after watching it. neither here nor there, if that makes sense. if you have a 1.5 hrs to kill, go ahead & feed your curiosity, but don't expect to come away with any insight to burroughs, vollmer, or the beat generation.
That is the best analysis of this awful movie that I have read.
