Worst film ever!

This most unattractive, grainy, film is a disgrace to the industry with the type of story line that phonies claim they understand while being unable to explain any of it. It is a complete waste of time. It would induce slumber except for he outlandish noises.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
