Movie Info

Young, handsome, and ambitious, Adam arrives from New York with dreams of making it big in L.A. He moves in with his zany best friend Candy who, between auditions, spends her time at the gym, shopping, or looking for a wealthy man. Adam gets off to a rocky start, complete with parking tickets and an insufferable job answering phones. A new job in production looks promising, but soon Adam finds himself dealing with down-and-out directors, washed up starlets, and meth addicts, as he starts to loose himself in a seamy underworld of gay porn and prostitution. -- (C) Official Sitemore

"Going Down" falls well short of compelling, either as a coming-of-age film, a satire or a romance.

A lo-fi feature blend of True West Hollywood Story and a gay fairy tale.

Audience Reviews for Going Down In La-la Land

Grittier than the last two films from Casper, he is perhaps the most compelling part of the film in the role of a strung-out addict. Casper's transition from charming to psycho is completely believable.
