No, it's not the latest reality show focusing on the seedy underbelly of Hollywood, but it sure feels like it. Loosely dressed as a modern take on Leo Tolstoy's The Death of Ivan Ilyich, this indie film rides shotgun with hot, young Tinseltown talent agent Ivan Beckman (Danny Huston) as he wheels and deals, does plenty of drugs, hangs with hookers and faces a life-threatening illness.
Shot on high-definition digital video, the reality-TV-like camera work takes some getting used to. And the even shakier editing, dialogue and acting quickly reveal this isn't exactly summer's big blockbuster. At least Huston's charisma shines through, making the trip a little more bearable.
