Glitterati is a 2004 film directed by Roger Avary assembled from the 70 hours of video footage shot for the European sequence of The Rules of Attraction in October of 2002, after the events of 9/11. It serves to expand upon the very minimally detailed and rapidly recapped story told by the character of Victor Ward (portrayed by Kip Pardue, featured in Avary's other film The Rules of Attraction ) upon his return to the United States after having traveled extensively around Europe. Also, in regard to expanding upon those events, it acts as a connecting bridge between The Rules of Attraction and another upcoming film adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' novel (also directed by Avary) entitled Glamorama, which will feature the character of Victor Ward as its central protagonist. Avary has called the film a "pencil sketch of what will ultimately be the oil painting of Glamorama."
