Another Day In Paradise [DVD] [English] [1998]

Director Larry Clark (Kids) courts controversy once again with the tale of a young couple that teams with an older pair of professional thieves and embarks on a brutal, drug-fueled crime spree in this Vidmark release. Presented in the original 1.66:1 widescreen theatrical aspect ratio and featuring an English Dolby Digital Stereo 5.1 soundtrack, this release also offers optional English, Spanish, and French subtitles. With extra features that include both the original theatrical version and the full-length director's cut, a director's commentary track, a Clarence Carter music video, cast information, and a theatrical trailer, it's truly hard to beat this disc, especially at the remarkably low retail price.

Synopsis

Another Day In Paradise
Following the acclaim for his 1995 Kids debut, Larry Clark directed this drug-crime drama, set in the Midwest of the '70s. Teen junkie Bobbie (Vincent Kartheiser) shares an apartment with his girlfriend Rosie (Natasha Gregson Wagner) and pal Danny (Branden Williams). Bobbie is injured during an encounter with a security guard but regains his health under the supervision of his dynamic drug-dealer uncle Mel (James Woods). After a successful robbery of speed from an out-of-town doctor's clinic, Bobby, Rosie, Mel, and Mel's melancholy gal Sid (Melanie Griffith) encounter gunplay in a drug deal gone sour. With Mel and Bobby both wounded, they retreat to the headquarters of a gun merchant known as the Reverend (James Otis). When Rosie loses her baby, she slips into a depression and more drug use. Mel recovers and begins planning another heist, but the group is beginning to unravel. Shown at 1998 film fests (Venice, Toronto). ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
