DRUG ADDICTION IN FILM

Drug addiction, including alcoholism, is a topic often explored in film. Initially a taboo subject has now become a global problem of gigantic proportions, which cannot be ignored.

The intent and purpose of this list is to both highlight the number of ways cinema has addressed addiction throughout the years and, for the most part, the positive role it continues to play in raising awareness to this ever-increasing global issue.

*Please note: In keeping with the theme of this list; a number of drug-related documentaries have been included: Drug Related Documentaries | <<< Return to Page 1.
