Spun

Spun For a speed freak, time is an elastic element. College drop-out Ross (Jason Schwartzmann) learns this first-hand as he surrenders to a three-day odyssey through a circus-like, crystal-meth Hell in the North Los Angeles Valley. Ross shows up at Spider Mike's (John Leguizamo) dive bungalow, looking to score and desperate enough to risk Spider Mikes paranoid and mercurial temper.

Spider Mike's companions at the bungalow included Cookie (Mena Suvari), Frisbee (Patrick Fugit) and Nikki (Brittany Murphy), a giggly Vegas stripper, whose boyfriend The Cook (Mickey Rourke) concocts the local speed supply in his motel room laboratory.

Ross ricochets between the hilarious and the bizarre as he makes his descent into the insomniac, anarchaic world of meth junkies. After narrowly escaping a bust, with Nikki, the realise that they have both lost the will to break free of the downward spiral they're riding, they both have crossed the crystal-meth line of no return: they're ''spun''.
