After watching Helter Skelter

I finally found the opportunity to watch Helter Skelter, and it was better than what I expected... except for a few things.
Since the movie was about the tragic, ugly truth on trying to remain beautiful forever, I wish they had more scenes focusing on the schemes behind the clinic practicing illegal plastic surgery, and more of Lilico's past. Or maybe increase the interaction between the prosecutor and Lilico by having them meet each other earlier than the movie had it set up.
Also, there were unnecessary sex scenes. Only one or two scenes were related to the plot, and they could've reduced the length of those scenes as well.
However, I have to say that the backgrounds were impressive. The scattered drugs, unorganized room with too much decorations, excessive beauty products, and the gossip of the girls were pretty much nicely done. The actress for Lilico was good - the arrogant yet tempting attitude, the hallucinations, the final madness had all been done well.
I heard this was based on a manga, so I should check it out once I find the time.
