Storyline

Five very different characters are thrown together in one weird, mashed up day. It started out like any other, but 24 hours later everything had changed. South West 9 takes you through the windscreen of the new millenium. The death of idealism, capitalism, religion and hippies. Even the drugs don't work anymore. The 'summer of love' generation have come down and they're ready to riot. Seattle. Stockholm. Paris. Genoa. May Day riots. Written by Anonymous

Awesome drugs movie
8 February 2003 | by (Shropshire, England) – See all my reviews

From the get go this film does not let up. As it says on the front it's Trainspotting meets Pulp Fiction, and is thoroughly gripping throughout.

The characters and plot line are very interesting and provide great humourous moments, as they meander around the streets coming towards the dance club/church where they all finally end up.

Perhaps the best thing about the movie is the pulsating soundtrack, with a tremendous variety of dance music genres, along with great one-liners, such as the mention of 'penguin acid trance.'

The direction is interesting, and the layout of the scenes and various different set pieces are all colourful and add to the movie. The script is good, and the actors thoroughly excell in their roles.

There are many subtle similarities betwen this and the classic Human Traffic, and it takes elements from a variety of other films.

Its also a real eye-opener for non-Acid-trippers, as well as being a pleasing journey into the world of pill-poppers for those who do eat Disco Biscuits!

One of the best low-budget independent films around, very worth while checking out.

10/10
