Movie of the Month: I Melt With You

Sometimes your past is never done with you and sometimes you are not done with your past. In the 2011 arthouse thriller I Melt With You those themes appear as four friends reunite for a guys weekend filled with booze, drugs, gambling and excess. Yet, while as they are celebrating being away from their jobs, families, and escaping, one of the guys brings up a dark suicide pact secret that none want to go through with. The film, which stars Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven, Rob Lowe, Christian McKay, Carla Cugino and Sascha Grey, centers around the idea that while these lifelong friends have gone through everything together are they willing to do everything together. The cerebral, frightening and often times haunting film is one to look up, watch and above all indulge in and put yourself in their shoes.
