Surprisingly, I loved it “The Rules of Attraction” is about rich kids, drugs, partying and a glimpse into college life. Since I’ve unfortunately known people just like this, it definitely scored with me. From beginning to end, this movie is fascinating and I couldn’t pull myself away from it. Each scene is great and its a rare film that doesn’t bore you. Its a very black comedy yet in many ways it hits on quite a few real issues. Sean is the main character, a drug dealing sociopathic character who falls for a virgin named Lauren who has a boyfriend named Victor. All the while Paul is in love with Sean. It sounds like a simple plot, but in the hands of Roger Avary its compelling. The backwards scenes, the suicide scene, the parties and the character interaction is disturbing yet intriguing. Of course, the book is better but that is generally the case. Still, I liked this better than “American Psycho” for some reason. It just seemed sadly real to me.

The Madness of Youth The Rules of Attraction might very well be the best comedy I saw in 2002. Yes, read this right. A comedy. I found myself laughing so hard at times that I had to watch the movie twice to make sure I hadn’t missed anything. Only the twisted mind of Bret Easton Ellis could create the basis for this film.

Where’s the satire? Rules Of Attraction is one of those rare movies which doesn’t seem to have an audience. Based on the Brett Easton Ellis (author of American Psycho) novel, the basic set-up is a group of college kids including James Van Der Beek as Sean Bateman, who is in love with the virginal Lara, who is also in love with him but wants to save herself for Victor. Oh, and Paul is in love with Sean too. This could well be the story for any good-natured quirky teen flick. However, the abandonment with which these kids snort cocaine, drink and have sex sets it apart as more akin to movies such as Go than She’s All That.
