Less Than Zero

I was reminded while watching this how strange it is that I enjoy so many movies that are based on novels by Bret Easton Ellis, yet I’ve never read any of his novels (I really should rectify this). But it doesn’t change that this was a movie that I loved back then, and still really enjoyed now. It was even darker than I remembered, but at the same time, I’d forgotten how relatively simple a story it is (and just takes place over a couple of days/nights). And the soundtrack puts you in the right mood — with songs that I wouldn’t necessarily say were my favorite from the time, but they’re effective and put you in the right “1987” frame of mind.
