Less Than Zero

Despite some ham fisted direction, a great cast dominated by Robert Downey, Jr. and perfect musical selections from Rick Rubin make “Less Than Zero” well worth watching. Plus there’s the pitch-perfect picture of rich kid LA in the go-go eighties, with high-concept art parties, coke, lofts, art, punk going pop, more coke and all the other era-appropriate elements (no seat belts! no helmets for motorcyclists!). If this was the narrative of the late 80’s then “The Social Network” is the narrative of our time.
