The less said of "Total Eclipse", the better.

Suffice it to say that it is based on Christopher ("Dangerous Liaisons") Hampton's early play about French poets Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud (but better know that before the film starts), that it was directed by Agniezska ("The Secret Garden") Holland, that it stars David ("Naked") Thewlis and Leonardo ("Basketball Diaries") DiCaprio-- and that they're all *off*. A case of bad pen-, camera-, and (lack of) hair day for all.
