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. ...

A movie that stays with you long after the closing credits
19 September 2005 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This felt like MORE than a movie... it felt as if we had some sort of porthole into the lives of REAL people living the life of real addicts in a real city. The acting in this movie was impeccable. The characters were more than believable, they were so authentic that is was like watching a reality show. The human emotions that would trail across the faces and through the eyes of the characters followed by the desperation for the next fix... the slow sinking to new lows... each scene depicted the underworld that's out there and the selfish but pathetic lifestyle and thought processes of the addict, played out to their inevitable consequences. This movie was so real it hurt to watch it and various scenes have come back to haunt both my husband and myself for several days after having watched it. An amazing portrayal that maybe asks some questions but definitely has no answers only looks to us with empty eyes and open, shaky hands.
