"...Good performances from Elizabeth Hurley and others..."
New York Times - 09/18/1998
"...[Stiller gives] a fine, rivetingly caustic performance....PERMANENT MIDNIGHT is as enveloping as it is darkly cautionary, thanks to the effectively varied layers of Mr. Veloz's direction and the bitter intensity Mr. Stiller brings to his central role..."
Los Angeles Times - 09/18/1998
"...PERMANENT MIDNIGHT's Hollywood segments are clever and amusing..."
Sight and Sound - 11/01/2000

Based on the memoirs of Jerry Stahl, a successful TV writer who was reduced to working at a McDonalds' drive-thru window by his crippling addiction to heroin. Ben Stiller gives an acclaimed performance as Stahl in this gritty film ripe with darkly comedic moments. Stahl himself has a cameo as a drug counselor.
