A Must See
5 May 2004 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

I would fully reccomend this movie and look forward to seeing it get more public distribution. Lisa Marie's last film since her split from Tim Burton finally getting a chance to play a lead roll. She rocks, really getting down and dirty showing the non glamourous side of heroin, as if there were a glamorous one. Sam Ball is also in it, the same Sam Ball who's starring in 13 going on 30, this was his first feature too. This movie is hardcore but really worth seeing if you want to see something extraordinary, life-changing, and just plain dramatic. In my opinion, it's destined to be an underground hit and then make it to more commercially viable venues. It's hard to find, but find it. Find it now.
