Wonderland (2003)
James Cox directs the sleazy Hollywood murder tale Wonderland, starring Val Kilmer as legendary porn star John Holmes. Using a non-linear plot structure, the film explores different perspectives of the quadruple homicide that occurred on July 1, 1981, in the Hollywood Hills. At the lowest point of his career and the height of his drug addiction, Holmes was implicated in the murders of the Wonderland gang: Ron Launius (Josh Lucas), Billy Deverell (Tim Blake Nelson), Barbara Richardson (Natasha Gregson Wagner), and Joy Miller (Janeane Garofalo). Launius' wife, Susan (Christina Applegate), was the only survivor. Led by Detective Sam Nico (Ted Levine), the police investigation reveals a dark criminal underworld surrounding Holmes, his disapproving wife, Sharon (Lisa Kudrow), and his innocent teenage girlfriend, Dawn Schiller (Kate Bosworth). Eric Bogosian stars as notorious Hollywood nightclub owner Eddie Nash. Wonderland premiered at the 2003 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

Great Cast, Solid Flick by RDana March 18, 2004 - 4:37 AM PST

Wow, what a wierd and great cast! Val Kilmer puts in a solid performance, but I was surprised by the good work here by Lisa Kudrow, Dylan McDermott and Eric Bogosian, and great cameos by Carrie Fischer and Christina Applegate - No, I'm not kidding! For god sake, they even throw Paris Hilton in there! (It is a movie about a porn star - just go with it!)

This movie is well worth the time, and the DVD extras are great, including a court tv documentary and the incredibly gruesome LAPD crime scene video - pass on this if you're at all squeemish!
