Toback's backbone of a script is great- it sets up the finest young actorofmy generation (debatable- but worth saying) Downey Jr. is masterful inadlibbing and improvising. He accomplishes what Brando failed to do inLastTango in Paris. Downey is real. His problems, his inner angst, histroublesall surface. This is like being with him. His magic and charm areentrancingand enchanting. Pretty cool. Worth a watch late at night- intensethough.

i admit my love for this film is twofold--the setting (my City, Soholoft vibe!) and of course Robert himself. he is sexy, period. he istalented beyond what the public at large has realized. this was shownin his fabulous singing in this film. who knew he could sing? and don'tstart me on his acting--he is fantastic. this script is brilliant,tantalizing, intelligent, refreshing yet also so real that it's kindaeerie, but in a good way. so he's caught playing boytoy to 2 differentgirls. the girls could hit him, be stupid, and ruin the film butinstead it gets heady, dare i say cerebral? and unlike most stuff outnow that feels it must include a "dyke" subplot to be "hip", it doesn't"go there" but rather focuses on the dysfunction of this man and the 2lovers he's been simultaneously f-ing. the staging is perfectly set--atight, confining setting of a loft. perfect. and the lighting is great,a light you'll only find in Soho. just amazing. all the actors giveperfect performances. every nuance is right, every word is felt,believed. it's simply divine.

I think all the performances were very good, although Downey's overshadowshis two fellow actors. As I watched, I laughed a lot. When it ended myfirst impression was that it is a very clever lightweight comedy. Sincethen, the film has made me think fairly deeply, a rare effect indeed fromany film.
To date it poses two questions to me:
1-can a man/woman love two people at once (or is s/he a simplephilanderer)?
2-is fidelity possible or desirable in the milieu of thisfilm?
A last question is whether self-destructiveness is inseparable from thetalent of actors like Downey and Robin Williams and others?
I have revised my first assessment of the film upward.
Two girls, Carla and Lou meet on the street outside a loft waiting for their boyfriends. In a short time, they find out that they're waiting for the same guy - young actor Blake, who said that he loves only her to both of them but was actually leading double life for a few months already. Angry, they break into his loft and when he returns, a round of accusations and explanations begins.
