  • Summary: Veronica (Robertson) falls for two guys she meets at a party -- witty and intellectual rock critic Abel (Shaech) and passionate punk drummer Zed (Keeslar) -- and the three of them attempt to live together while adjusting to life in their unconventional relationship.

    There's a genuine, sparky chemistry between the three (and later, a fourth), and Robertson, particularly, is luminous in her role.
  2. The pleasing Splendor is surely more likely to appeal to a wider audience than any of Araki's previous films.
  3. 70
    It's dirty and delightful, if a tad on the slight side.
  4. Almost a textbook example of what can go wrong when an artistic bad boy decides to be good.
  5. Araki graduates from his usual obsession with teenage angst in this neon-lighted comedy, but fails to hit the visual and verbal high notes he strains so hard to reach.
  6. Reviewed by: Ken Fox
    50
    Characteristically stylish and willfully outre, and uncharacteristically watchable.
  7. Ineptly written and shot like a fashion mag, rings hollow throughout. It's a long, long way from "Jules and Jim."
