A movie that should be watched by anyone who thinks drug experimentation is harmless,
9 October 1999 | by (Lahaina, Hawaii) – See all my reviews

This is a powerful movie about the love between two bothers.One experiments with drugs and is swept away from his family and eventually reality. Nick Chinlund as "Lex" gives a powerful and disturbing performance as the brother destroyed by drugs. An Academy Award nomination was deserved!!!
