200 Cigarettes (1999)

Downtown New York, late on New Year’s Eve 1981—it’s a neo–Brat Pack ensemble piece about know-nothing twentysomethings and their social plights. Mostly, though, it’s a stomach-roiling reacquaintance with New Wave, mousse-and-“glittah” style, alien hair helmets, and post-punk accessories, worn by a huge cast of already-somebodies: Ben Affleck, Christina Ricci, Gaby Hoffman, Janeane Garofalo, Kate Hudson, Paul Rudd, Casey Affleck, Courtney Love, Jay Mohr, and more—too many likable stars, all doing little. But if this movie’s about the old you, give it a shot.
