Model, bounty hunter, addict - the story of Domino Harvey
- The film Domino - scheduled for release this August but now likely to be put back while Tony Scott, its director, adds a new, tragic ending to it - is likely to further confound the world’s understanding of its subject, Domino Harvey.
Before she was found dead in the bath at her West Hollywood home, Harvey had made clear her hatred of the film, starring Keira Knightley. Proudly lesbian, Harvey disliked what she saw as soft-porn titillation in the film and she regretted selling the rights to her life story for just £26,000. The film cost £30 million.
For the review NeoCon Wanted:
A Hollywood life gone horribly wrong. Bounty hunters and death, a good mix.
Add some decent celebrities with bit appearances - Mickey Rourke, Christopher
Walken, Jacqueline Bisset, and Lucy Liu - to name a few - and what you got is a
watchable B movie. I'd give it a B+, but it tries to be Natural Born Killers
with a over done Hollywoodized script. The movie is definitely watachable, even
enjoyable, but only tops my "good movies to watch" list, doesn't fall into the
good movies you MUST watch list.
In short, you should rent this, enjoyable but not "great."
