Product Description

Product Description

Three days of epic drug binging become a meth-induced odyssey for college dropout Ross when he becomes the local crystal meth cook's personal driver in exchange for free drugs. Bouncing from one bizarre situation to another, Ross slowly slips deeper and deeper into the crazy anonymous world of speed freaks in which there exists no boundaries or morality. With an all star cast including Brittany Murphy, Jason Schwartzman, John Leguizamo, Patrick Fugit, Mena Suvari, and an unfortunate green dog,get ready to see the city through eyes that can't sleep. It's SPUN.

Amazon.ca

Spun is an unclassifiable ensemble piece, intentionally bleached of soulfulness and high on visual invention and comic depravity. Set in north Los Angeles, where meth freaks lurch from one motel room to another in search of companionship and a score, the film stars Jason Schwartzman as Ross, whose life is rapidly disintegrating. Fielding phone messages from his mother and trying in vain to reach an old girlfriend, Ross spends most of his time on a feverish circuit with the half-mad Cookie (Mena Suvari) and Nikki (Brittany Murphy), the dangerously paranoid Spider Mike (John Leguizamo), and a macho drugmaker called the Cook (Mickey Rourke). Director Jonas Akerlund's story is nonexistent, but then again Spun is driven by the blurry, hellish energy of a life lived on speed. An obvious influence is Darren Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream, but Akerlund is interested in nightmarish set pieces than tiny horrors of misfired nerve endings and ravaged time. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The Swedish music-video director Jonas Åkerlund gives us a movie about drugs. It is heavily inspired by greater drug-movies like "Trainspotting" (1996) and "Requiem For A Dream" (2000). But unlike most of the drug-movies I've seen earlier, "Spun" has no moral or deep meaning and message, it's just a film made to entertain and make you laugh. And it SURE made ME laugh...
Just as I wrote in the first line...this film is about drugs. It's hard to find a real plot in this film. It's just about people doing drugs, especially Speed (the word "Spun" means to be affected by Speed), and the their messed-up lives and everyday situations, seen through drug-affection. But while "Spun" doesn't have a real story, it has a some other qualities to offer: funny and well-created characters, good actors, a good soundtrack and A LOT of funny scenes and situations (it is bizarre humor though, that may not be recommended for everyone).
The main character Ross (played by Jason Schwartzman) is mostly a "ordinary" drug-abuser trapped in the sick world of drugs. But the other characters are funny, interesting and original. And the actors gives us these unrealistic, and sometimes almost cartoon-like characters, through some good acting. Characters like Spider Mike, played by John Leguizamo, a man I usually hate to see on the screen, and Frisbee, played by Patrick Fugit are highlights. But the one I will be remembering is Mickey Rourke in his role as The Cook (the one who's cooking up all the drugs). I could try to describe him, but it would have taken up too much space. You just have to see him for yourself...funniest character and performance of the film.

Okay, first off, please do not listen to all the pretentious reviewers who turn their nose up at "Spun", constantly repeating "Requiem for a Dream" in a pathetic, unoriginal mantra. This movie is highly imaginative, enthralling, and kept my interest the entire time. A friend of mine had it on video and said I should see it, so I had no expectations...and I was surprised to find it one of the most enjoyable movies I've ever seen.
Again, regardless of what other negative reviewers have said, there is a plot line to the movie - watching the actions and events surrounding a group of speed freaks on a meth binge. It isn't pretty, it isn't insightful, and that's the point of the movie itself.
Though the running theme is a bit dark and depressing (but alas presented a very humorous light), the characters are beautifully pathetic. Everyone was fabulous - Mickey Rourke, Brittany Murphy, Jason Schwartzman, everyone! My personal favourite was Patrick Fugit's portrayal of the loser Frisbee and his spastic tendancies (someone I haven't seen mentioned enough!). And, yet again, in contradiction to other reviewers, there is some character development; we discover the reason why our main characters are what they are, and in full honesty, there isn't much else to the character to know. All they have are their roots and their craving for another hit. The point of the movie was to show the disillusionment that lead to their lifestyle, the disillusionment they had concerning their drug habit...as Jason Schwartman says near the end, "..and the greatest thing about it is, I'm not hooked!"
Not only is the story well done, but the stylistic elements were superb.

This movie was really really FUNNY. It seems like many of the other reviews are showing the movie as serious, so i was expecting another Requium for a dream. But the only real similarity was the vision of drugs and how they send a life on a downward course. SPUN is just an engaging film with lots of humor, likeable characters, and some really messed up *@@! happening to them all.
To truly apreciate the actors you must also see- RUSHMORE and ALMOST FAMOUS. Jason Schwartsman is a totaly different nerd in Rushmore, and Patrick Fuquit was the likeable star in Almost Famous. Both of these guys play extremely different but likable parts in this movie. I was pleasantly surprised and am now big fans of both of these actors.
BILLY CORGAN does the music, and its great. I just need the soundtrack-which doesnt exist. Corgan also has a small appearance in the movie. Hes wearing a big yellow wig.
Get the unrated version- it has lots of nudity of one especially hot blond. Britney Murphy was really hot in this movie too, even though she is supposedly a junkie. she has a dance scene at a strip club, but no nudity of course.
Anyway- Get this movie as fast as you can. It will spin you.

I really like this movie and decided to purchase it to view over and over again for years. 4 stars for a movie.
However, I was extremely disappointed to discover that both the audio and video have been censored for content by using 'bleeps' and 'blackout tactics'.
I've seen this movie at least three times on regular television (without the shenanigans) so I know what it's supposed to look and sound like.
Frankly, I'm disturbed that censored content is being sold on Amazon and have full intentions of getting to the bottom of how this is happening.
