Quotes

Alix: I found out how hard it is to change, really change. Even hell can get comfortable if you're used to it. All I wanted my whole life, was for that lonliness inside me to go away. But, it never did, no matted what I drank, or what drug I took, or where I went, who I was with. We all need something to help us get through life. All I needed was to find the right thing to rely on, something that would never go away, something I would never run out of. Turned out to be the same thing for everybody. ...

Painful, beautiful, honest and professional story of lost youth
11 December 2005 | by (Manhattan) – See all my reviews

This well made and worthy first film by Rosemary Rodriguez is a must see film for anyone with a loved one, friend or interest in drug addiction. It is moving, informative and interesting and obviously a labor of love and hard-won knowledge. Ana Reeder and Nestor Rodriguez shine brightly in a cast of great convincing actors that bring you along into their story of pain, loss, redemption, and tragedy and hope as believably and naturally as I've seen. And the story is honest, raw and strong. Rosemary Rodrigez really can handle the typewriter and an indie film crew. I started to watch this little masterpiece 3 months ago on a houseboat with a beat up 17" TV and several noisy friends. The beautiful opening and music immediately cried out to me for a better and more respectful viewing and I packed the DVD away in a Manhattan bound bag. Last night I finally had a good movie friend over and decent screen and sound system and broke out Acts Of Worship. Both of us know the Lower Side of the the early 90's and love great movies. This is a winner. Great Story. Great Visuals. Great Locations. Great Sound. Great Acting. Great Lean and Raw Directing.

Rent or buy a copy ASAP. Love your friends and family and share it with them. Don't let go of hope, don't give up on truth. Be useful, act kindly and bravely, and see Acts of Worship.
