Based on true stories Meth Head cleverly takes you into the downward spiral of drug use, not glorifying it at all. We all have a little or even a lot of Kyle in us which makes this movie even more powerful. Lucas Haas is outstanding in the lead role showing a boyishness & gentleness that is impossible not to like, as does Blake Berris, in fact the whole cast deliver sterling performances. Director Jane Clark has done a superb job with everything about this movie, & the haunting music of Curt Smith compliments the scenes it covers. Do yourself a favour & see it, especially if you have teenage kids that might think Meth is okay after shows such as Breaking Bad.
