I actually have tumblr to thank for my discovery of this movie. Before I watched it, I read many reviews and many say that Erika (Lillico) lacks depth of character and are critical of her performance. I however, really loved Erika's acting and I think her portrayal seems so genuine and real that I found no difficulty sympathizing with the character Lillico. Apart from Erika, I was really impressed with the whole cast and I might add that I was especially happy that Go Ayano was in this film. ><

The movie also deals with fame and power and looks at the influences of drugs, sex and cosmetic procedures. The themes this movie deals with are highly controversial and I believe that is why many people don't enjoy this film. Before I get too far into the review, it is really important to note that there are a significant amount of sex scenes in this movie. Seriously do not watch it if you are not mature enough to appreciate their importance to the plot development.

The music is such a great indicator in Helter Skelter. If something bad is going to happen, you can tell by the music. There is only one piece of music I thought was inappropriately placed but I won't mention anything as it will spoil the movie.

I've watched it twice so far and the only reason it hasn't been more is because I have other commitments. I can honestly not fault any aspect of this movie. Maybe you might have a different opinion to me but you'll never know if you don't give it a chance.

I'm going to be completely honest with this review. The cast and their acting was spectacular! Ryuya plays an autistic boy so well and it really gives authenticity to the story, Erika is an amazing actress and is so diverse in her acting styles and Kazuki is just perfection.

I enjoyed this movie until about halfway and from there the storyline just went downhill. The ending especially disappointed me due to its ambiguity and while it should have made the watcher feel the emotion of the characters, it was very difficult to sympathize with any of the characters which I will attribute to the story writing.

The music wasn't all that crash hot and could have been better however, it wasn't terrible.

I wouldn't rewatch this movie for the reason that the plotline wasn't all that original.

This wasn't a terrible movie and I encourage people to give it a chance ... it just wasn't my cup of tea.
