Once Again, help me remember a movie...
January 17, 2013 8:59 PM   Subscribe

The movie was released in the late 1990's early 2000's. It's a movie set in LA in the 70's or 80's. There's a murder (or beating?) at a nice house over a drug deal.

There's also a dumpy apartment where people live and use drugs.

Lots of scenes of sitting in an old beater outside the nice house where the murder occurs. There's a girl in the movie who gets caught up in the whole thing. I think they try to frame someone who is innocent and he has to clear his name. I seem to recall either a suitcase full of money or drugs. (No, not true romance...)

You know this movie...Please help me remember!

FWIW, the Wonderland Murders were also fictionalized in Boogie Nights.

If you want to read the true story of the "girl who is wrapped up in everything" I suggest The Road Through Wonderland- which is the memoir of John Holmes' 16 year old girlfriend. She worked with the film makers on Wonderland, but was a bit upset at how they portrayed Holmes as sympathetic.
