The First Cut is the Deepest

Vince and company return to L.A. after an Italian vacation that wiped out the last of their funds. Drama volunteers his new condo for his baby bro’s “welcome home” party, which Turtle slowly escalates from intimate gathering to all-out rager. While Drama scrambles to party-proof his pad, hiding furniture and padlocking the bathroom, Vince and E meet with Ari to decide which job to take next. Ari delivers the bad news that the industry has placed Vince on death watch; no one will sign him before seeing ‘Medellin’ in case the film bombs a la ‘Gigli.’ But Ari’s problems extend beyond business; some sort of hitch has threatened his son’s admission into the Briar Country Day School, which his daughter already attends. After charming, threatening and bribing his way to an answer from the headmaster, Ari finds out his cell phones and swearing have driven the school over the edge, and blackballing the son is the only way to expel the father. Ari yanks his daughter from class on his way out.

Vince and E try to speed up the ‘Medellin’ release with a visit to Walsh – who’s wearing the only cut around his neck – but the director tears off on a motorcycle to avoid showing them the film. After a day spent hunting for him, E calls from Vince’s party and shames Walsh into screening the movie. As soon as Vince and E leave the condo, Drama ejects the entire crowd, which resettles in Vince’s hotel room, a venue Drama couldn’t care less about destroying. Walsh sweats out the screening by performing calisthenics in the hallway, but after the flick Vince and E congratulate him on a job well done. On the way home, E asks Vince, “You didn’t really like it, did you?” Vince says he thought it was great, but E tells him, “I thought it sucked.” A call from Turtle interrupts the conversation. Anthony Michael Hall has urinated off of Vince’s balcony, and the hotel management didn’t exactly appreciate it. Adding “homeless” to their list of “broke” and “unemployed,” Vince and E head to Drama’s condo to sleep it off.

Welcome to the Jungle

At long last, Vince and his comrades have arrived in Colombia to shoot ‘Medellin.’ A documentary crew captures the action, most of which occurs behind the scenes as Walsh steadily unravels. When Walsh demands 1,000 extra soldiers, assaults the director of photography, and confesses that he doesn’t have an ending for the script, rookie producer E rushes to hold things together.

In a rare moment of vulnerability, Walsh confesses, “Too many sets, too many extras, too many explosions. I’m melting down.” E reassures him, going so far as to hire an Academy Award winner remove the pressure or writing the ending. But, before the writer arrives – and after E pays him 275k – Walsh rewrites the entire script, complete with the finale his masterpiece deserves. As explosions on Pablo Escobar’s compound punctuate the last day of shooting, the narrator asks Walsh whether he thinks he made a good film, and the director replies, “Till I see the final cut, I have no idea. But you know what, neither does anybody else.”
