Because you're sure not interested in HAVOC for its ungainly mixture of THIRTEEN meets LESS THAN ZERO on the set of THE OC. It's strange to note that such a shallow and leering portrait of wayward young women was written by an author as talented at Stephen (TRAFFIC) Gaghan and directed by accomplsihed documentarian Barbara Kopple, but the simple truth is that HAVOC is not much more than a soft-core Cinemax-style exploitationer with just a little more self-obsessed psycho-babble than I normally prefer in my teenage ta-ta exhibitions. Because, for all its inward glances and aspirations of depth, HAVOC has as much meat on its bones as does your average 90-minute block of MTV SPRING BREAK.
Fans of character actors may note that folks like Michael Biehn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Laura San Giacomo are among the cast, but none are given nearly enough to do, which leaves Freddy Rodriguez as the only real scene-stealer. Well, when the girls aren't onscreen, that is.
But yeah, Anne breaks out the boobies once or twice, and yes, they're amazingly spectacular. Ditto the whole package of the adorable Bijou Phillips. One watches the pretentiousness of HAVOC and hopes to see Hathaway and Phillips in better films in the (near) future. Based on what's (ahem) on display here, I bet we'll be seeing a lot more of both ladies sometime real soon.
