Darker side of Life
28 April 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"Trapped in a Purple Haze" is a great movie flick that will guarantee to engage teenage viewers until the very end. It shows the viewers the darker, less respectful side of life of a teenage boy, Max. The movie is set during Max's stage where he is on his road to self discovery and when he is at his most vulnerable stage ultimately leading him into the world of drugs. Before seeing this movie I personally thought that men were the ones that influenced women into doing drugs but this movie was a great contradictory statement for me as it showed me a different viewpoint that women can be just as influential and seductive. "Trapped in a Purple Haze" is of the desperate struggles of a boy wanting to get his life back on the road. A fantastic movie full of life's lessons and morals that will guarantee to touch everyone's heart in one way or another.
