I hope you'll stumble across this title and make the effort to find a copy because it's certainly worth it. Furthermore, if your radio seems locked on to Pete Tong on a Friday night, then this is essential viewing.

Not everyone will "get" this film, it's certainly one for the younger generation, but anyone who enjoyed "Human Traffic" will find this just as enthralling.

In essence it's a snapshot of clubbing in 1994, long before things became mainstream as they are now (Y2K). And it's a rollercoaster ride with 6 "youths" as they enjoy/live life with drugs/clubs/pubs and thugs.

It's balanced, it's funny, it's sad, it certainly portrays a good view of drug taking both the positive and negative aspects. And just as Justin Kerrigan (director) does in Human Traffic, it shows the underlying social situation that millions of 18 - 25 year old are in in the 90's (and naughty's).

If you doubt the fact that over half a million people use Ecstacy every weekend in the UK, then watch this film and understand.

If you just love club music and want a laugh, then track it down.
