Directed by rock-and-roll couple Perry Farrell (lead singer of the defunct L.A. band Jane's Addiction) and Casey Niccoli, GIFT may appeal to the band's devoted following. A lethargic, arty examination of their relationship, it has some shock value, but little else to offer.
Casey calls her husband Perry at a recording studio and says she has a present for him, apparently referring to some heroin. She shoots up and collapses. Perry comes home, finds Casey dead, and begins to reminisce about their relationship. He recounts the story of their drug addiction,
including a tale about a generous prescription-writing doctor.
Perry picks up Casey and makes love...
