tells much more than Hollywood drug addiction movies.
4 June 2009 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

It has all been my dream/utopia that every single human being on earth should have at least one work (movie, book, poem, painting, sculpture, E=mc'2, etc).Yes Ben: Diary of a Heroin Addictis one of those works.And it deserves really high place in documentation history."Requiem For A Dream" and "Trainspotting" has always been accepted as the best works about Heroin addiction.But in my opinion Ben's work deserves more than these movies.Thanks Ben.You have done a really good job. Your ruined life will guide to many many people to have their life not ruined.I wish yours were not either.And I know you have tried your best. Love for you and your lovely dad/family. best luck to all heroin addicts all around the world
