Incredibly convoluted drama in which several lives are examined in the grungy Hollywood. A woman (Laura Harring) who is nearly murdered by several thugs in her luxurious vehicle until gets involved in a head-on crash in the hills. She stumbles away as her near-assailants either are killed or injured (not that clear) in the wreck and she loses all memory, including the knowledge of her own name. She meets an aspiring actress (Naomi Watts) who tries to help her find her origination, which leads them down a strange and dark path. The other story concerns a director's life (Justin Theroux) who is blackmailed into accepting the application of unknown actress or facing the alternative of getting into deep trouble. Another small plotline also concerns a hit man (Mark Pellegrino), the one behind the near killing of the amnesiac woman, who commits three acts of murder, which includes two innocent bystanders, and then just disappears. Such a weird story warrants a definite viewing from all viewers who like strange mysteries with REALLY disjointed narrations. Well-acted and includes a pretty memorable lesbian love scene. A little too hard to follow at times, but is never boring and is always interesting.
