Rotting in the Sun (2023)
A smart, ruthless satire of Hollywood and social media, Rotting in the Sun stars the film’s director and co-writer, Sebastián Silva, who plays a fictionalized, depressed, drugged-out, very self-destructive version of himself.
When meets social media influencer Jordan Firstman (also playing a version of himself) on a gay beach, they go down a reckless path before the older Silva rejects Firstman for his supposed vapidity. But he soon gets pulled back into a collaboration.
Rotting in the Sun is explicit enough that some people will check out very early. Which is fine, not everything is for everyone.
