Movie Review: The Informers
Ginger Liu wrote this review 5 years and 2 months ago
American Psycho and Less Than Zero novelist, Bret Easton Ellis has adapted the screenplay for another one of his 1980’s set novels, The Informers. Ellis view on contemporary American life was hugely popular pre-9/11 days and captured perfectly a Generation X bored on excess. Mickey Rourke, Kim Basinger, and Generation X queen, Winona Ryder, star. Set in Los Angeles in the early 1980’s, the multi-strand narrative represents characters at both ends of the totem pole. There are plenty of Ellis’s trademarks of beautiful people partying all night long while their lives go nowhere.
