Storyline

Junkie is a pitch black comedy about two heavily addicted, drug addled brothers, Danny (Daniel Louis Rivas) and Nicky (Robert LaSardo). When Danny decides he's going clean, Nicky reacts aggressively, driving Danny from one insane experience to another as a whole host of bizarre, surreal characters descend on their house, all with grievances to bear, debts to reclaim or trouble to cause. As Danny's life spirals out of control he must fight tooth and nail to kick the habit and rescue himself from the personal hell Nicky has consigned him to, whilst simultaneously attempting to repair the deeply damaged relationships with his increasingly bizarre friends and family.

powerful stuff
17 November 2013 | by (Wiltshire, England) – See all my reviews

If you watch this, do so with an open mind, and I mean WIDE open.

It's incredible. While I was watching it I had the thought in my mind of something I read quite recently where some well known voice had derided addiction as disease. He (at least I think it was a 'he') stated that addiction is not a disease as with addiction one can choose to give up at any time, whereas with disease one can not. I.e. If I am an alcoholic, then I can stop drinking and get well, with some will power and support perhaps. If I have cancer I can't simply decide not to have cancer any more. Although this is true in some cases, as in cancer, it's certainly not true of all cases. Addiction is a disease, same as cancer, only it's a different type of disease.

This film takes a deep, raw look at addiction, from a very interesting perspective. It's a kick in the face of the usual crap which deals with addiction.
