The scene where Rich (Thomas Jane) and Tim (Christian Mcakay) are joy riding in the porshe is a clear nod to Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange' wherein Tim starts 'Whooping' in similarity to the Durango speeding scene of 'Clockwork'..only sealing it with "Go Faster..got faster!" See more »
You fuck lots of women. Have you ever truly loved one?
I love them all. Can't love them all if you only love one.
If that's true, that's interesting.
Yeah. You want to know what I think, Timothy? When they really get to see me, I don't like what they see.
You make sure of that.

I Melt With You - I Almost did melt with this !!! :)
I watched this movie a couple of days before, and i elaborated it as deep as i could, trying to find an explanation what happened from the start to the middle of the movie "and then" again from the middle to the end. If u watch the first hour and some minutes, you will be hooked to the movie - a masterpiece for that long, a triumph, an unique piece of cinema... and then suddenly something happens... the movie gets as devastated as could possibly get, it's almost like it looks to be self- destructed on a way that u can't even imagine - very stupidly and very ugly. And u can't even imagine where the filmmakers were trying to go with that. :(
Mark Pellington does a great job, IMO, he makes sure you'll stay attached to the movie in a way that no one else could have done so. - (Taking for that 1 Hour and something). The cast give superb performances, especially i have to pick out Tom Jane, even when the movie is "melting" to the last piece, he still keeps your attention with his performance... The soundtrack is one of the greatest one i've heard in years, and have to say it's one of the strongest asset of this "weird movie" (i also recommend the song from the trailer "Cameras - Defeatist").
I find it very difficult to rate it, but i do one thing know - this could have been great.
