    Not for the faint of heart, a vulgar romp through four bachelor's coke-fueled lives, and their poor-man's philosophy of life. Meaty roles for actors, and will be interesting to see it staged.

    A bunch of drug-fueled guys ramble through their idiot's philosophy while abusing women and failing to make it work in 1980s Hollywood. With the right actors, this could be at turns funny and horrifying. It seems kind of long to me, but I'd have to see it staged to judge for sure, perhaps its the kind of play where the fast pace that would be necessary to make it work would allow for more pages.These guys are appalling, and so are the women in their world who simply let themselves be passed arou [...]

    Great. Dialogue snaps and sings, really great dialogue. Pretty tragic play, almost had me in tears at one point. At times seems to be too nihilistic and directionless, but then it proves that thought wrong. Definitely has a Brief Interviews feel to it at points. I really look forward to reading more of Rabe's work.

    This plays the trick of making you hate these men for much of the play until they say some really lucid things about why we treat each other badly, pecking orders and insecurity. I believe some people in LALA land are this shitty, and I believe they are as playfully willing to admit the ways that they're shit, but I don't believe they are this lucid. But that's what makes it art.

    really did not care for this play, despite knowing that Sigourney Weaver was in it on Broadway. perhaps seeing it performed would improve it for me.

    oh beautiful depraved LA. David Rabe is a genius. Don't think for a moment that there is no point. Read to the end.

    A very difficult read. Very few moments where I was invested in these characters. The moments where I was, were good. For the most part though, it was just unlikable.

    Not impressed. Very dated, I couldn't see removing it from the '80s & yet it hasn't got the weight or relevance to comment on the decade in retrospect.
