A twisted take on the downtown ’80s, with sleazy Hollywood washout Eric Bogosian sleeping with and then murdering actress wannabe Zoë Tamerlis Lund (of Ms. 45 fame) and then using a lookalike (Lund again) to make a movie reconstruction of his crime. A playful tribute to Vertigo and clever send-up of De Palmaesque cinematic self-reflexivity. Print courtesy of The Academy Film Archive
