083: Less Than Zero (1987)

Painfully outdated, this eighties TV-movie is a wet blanket adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ obdurately frosty debut novel. Cali college kid Clay returns home for the summer break to find his best friend and ex-girlfriend spiralling out of control under the influence trust-fund financed cocaine.

Infamously remembered as the film which spawned Robert Downey Jr’s obsession and later addiction to hard drugs, Less Than Zero doesn’t have much else to offer, other than a laughably cheesy soundtrack and yet another awkward and creepy James Spader performance. 

★☆☆☆☆☆

IMDB it.
