Easily one of the most vile experiences I've ever had in a movie theater.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

[I]t's so concerned with camera trickery and letting the actors go nuts, that there's no fuel left in the tank for story or character development.

A lot of effort was expended on achieving the perfect look for Spun, but it's an electrifyingly told version of a plot you won't care about.

The lack of narrative sobriety and the director's shallow stylistic copycatting ... is the film's ultimate undoing.

April 17, 2004
More intent on giving us a day-in-the-life presentation of some speed freaks and their hijinks than actually telling us anything about them. Their actions are meaningless.

A great deal of energy is spent setting the thing up, bringing it off and then, post-rush, it just sort of drifts off into nowhere and goes still.

In Spun, the nightmare never ends for the pretty young Hollywood things like Mena Suvari and Brittany Murphy who play methamphetamine dress-up with pasted-on pimples and brushed-on bruises.

Inundated with trip-cam trickery that (rides) the ups and downs of the main character's drug buzzes, the film is nothing if not stylish, but falls short for lack of depth.

Mesmo com seu ótimo elenco, esta cópia sem personalidade de Vamos Nessa! e Réquiem para um Sonho é o exemplo perfeito da expressão 'muito estilo para pouco conteúdo'.

Spun may have its ambitions, but its adolescent eagerness to offend is what lingers.

Spun is slummishly stylish, occasionally funny, and pretty much devoid of meaning.

Seems to exist for no reason other than to suggest that crystal-meth freaks are really scattered innocents looking for their next consciousness-raising jolt.

The Core is not the only disaster flick opening today, and it's doubtful that the folks in that movie can save the urchins on crystal meth in Spun.

Ultimately, plot complication and freneticism can't distract us from noticing that the movie has no insights, no point, no urgency and no importance.

This movie is less than zero.

A loud, disorderly descent into narcissism, a movie so in love with itself that its gaze rarely leaves the mirror.

Ultimately, Spun has no more substance than American Pie II.

It never quite convinces you this is anything but a fashion shoot.

Mind-numbing visuals...that left me with the incredible need to take a shower and brush my teeth.

Une bien mauvaise caricature.
