Mesmo com seu timo elenco, esta cpia sem personalidade de Vamos Nessa! e Rquiem para um Sonho o exemplo perfeito da expresso 'muito estilo para pouco contedo'.
December 9, 2005
Une bien mauvaise caricature.
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.
November 25, 2003
Like an ex-addict reminiscing over their days of dependence, it's dead behind the eyes: hollowed out.
October 25, 2003
Aims for the edge but eccentricity and excess take over and dominate, thus taking the rest of the film down with them.

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.
May 21, 2003
Despite several fine performances, the anti-drug movie never hits whatever marks it was aiming for.
May 9, 2003
It never quite convinces you this is anything but a fashion shoot.
May 9, 2003
The problem with this much disgust is that it has a leveling effect; after a while, you don't feel shocked or moved, or even dirty, just bored.
May 9, 2003
It's giving Spun too much credit to say it's all style and no substance.
May 9, 2003
These people should be avoided at all costs.
May 9, 2003
A placebo of a film.
April 25, 2003
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.
April 25, 2003
Strip away the film's twisted perspective, and its roots in style-driven works like C.S.I. and Trainspotting, and mundane gross-out fare becomes apparent.
April 25, 2003
Ultimately, Spun has no more substance than American Pie II.
April 24, 2003
This drug drama has enough drugs to stock a hospital but precious little in the way of drama.
April 18, 2003
A gleefully repulsive movie.
April 17, 2003
Takes aim at the heart of a genuine malady and makes a music video out of it in all its slickified mock pretension, beautiful bodies, and guilty titillation.
April 6, 2003
Drugs may be bad, but this movie is worse. Do yourself a favor and just say no.
