Less Than Zero (CBS/Fox)
  Brest Easton Ellis' brilliant book about L.A.'s decadent, lost rich kids
becomes a maudin anti-drug story by the end of this disappointing film
version.  However, the movie's flashy cinematography and great rock
soundtrack (including Aerosmith, Poison, Joan Jett and Slayer's terrific
cover of "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida") keep things interesting for the first hour or
so.  Robert Downey, Jr. turns in a memorable performance as an increasingly
desperate cocaine addict.
