SPUN is a graphic portrayal of a young man who’s lost all sense of moral conscience because of his drug-induced stupor, brought about by his craving for methamphetamine, or speed. Like a greedy miser totally addicted to money, the young man is completely oblivious to everything but the next drug high.
Jason Schwartzman of RUSHMORE plays the young man, Ross, who shows up at the filthy house of Spider Mike to score some speed. Spider, however, has misplaced his stash somewhere in his own drug-induced haze. Ross is in luck, however, because Nikki, the young girlfriend of the speed chemist who supplies Mike, takes a liking to Ross. Ross gets involved with driving Nikki and her beau around town, in exchange for all the speed Ross desires, and a little money. Ross becomes so involved with Nikki and her boyfriend, played by a fortysomething Mickey Rourke, that he leaves his own naked girlfriend tied up in his apartment during most of the several days in which the story takes place.
SPUN has some of the most graphic sex scenes and nudity ever put into an independent movie. The constant drug use by the characters is also done mostly for shock value. A scene of explicit cartoon violence from a pornographic video game is a further reason to skip this abhorrent piece of filth.
