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.

Great movie but not for everyone
27 October 2013 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie today and it is an amazing film if you can finish it. I do see the fight club similarity and once you understand what's going on it totally makes sense.Seeing addiction personified also helps if you are or know someone who is or was an addict.I found Danny easily able to relate to and once you descend into his madness you can empathize with him. It's almost like someone took the scene from Trainspotting where Marc is going through withdrawal and focused on that. The last two minutes are what makes this movie, how Nicky speaks to you honestly and tries to help you.This films belongs right up there with the likes of Trainspotting.
