Official Trailer for Los Angeles-Set Druggie Indie 'A Thousand Junkies'

"Who do we know who can come through for us?" An official trailer has debuted for a funky little indie film titled A Thousand Junkies, set in Los Angeles following a drug junkie looking for his next fix. As much as that sounds like a film no one wants to see, the description is rather intriguing: it's a "'drug' movie with no drugs, and a 'road' movie that goes nowhere." From first-time director Tommy Swerdlow, the film stars Tj Bowen (who co-wrote the script) as Tj, one of the junkies going about his 9 to 5 life of searching for drugs. The cast includes Patricia Castelo Branco, Dinarte de Freitas, and Blake Heron. The Film Stage says the film "is not necessarily a morality tale, nor is it pure voyeurism. It's simply capturing a day in a life — or three, to be more specific." This reminds me a bit of Trainspotting, looks like a good time.

Exclusive Trailer for ‘A Thousand Junkies’ Captures the All-Consuming Search for the Next Fix

The screenwriter behind such family fare as Cool Runnings, Little Giants, and Snow Dogs, Tommy Swerdlow spent nearly two decades addicted to heroin and methadone, and with any addiction also comes the unceasing search for the next fix. He’s now channeled these experiences for his directorial debut, A Thousand Junkies, and we’re pleased to premiere the trailer today courtesy of The Orchard. Starring alongside co-writer Tj Bowen and the late Blake Heron–both of whom Swerdlow met in AA–one can’t imagine a more authentic rendering of such a life-consuming addiction than what this pitch-black buddy comedy captures.

“The film embodies a statement made by Jerry Stahl, writer of Permanent Midnight: a good friend who is a junkie will do all of your drugs and then spend the day helping you look for them,” John Fink said in our Tribeca Film Festival review. “A Thousand Junkies

Tribeca Review: ‘A Thousand Junkies’ is a Pitch-Black, Personal Comedy

Punctuated with banter about the best places to score, which gas station bathroom is the best for shooting up, which neighborhoods have cops roaming, where in downtown can one get a bag of coke on a tight budget, and from whom can they steal to score the next fix, Tommy Swerdlow’s pitch-black slice of life A Thousand Junkies is a bleak, yet engaging look at a day in the life of three junkie friends. Simultaneously absurd, playful, and horrific, Trainspotting this is not.

Told as a matter-of-fact buddy comedy, the film is inspired by the real-life struggles of its stars. Director Tommy Swerdlow and co-writer Tj Bowen, along with friend Blake Heron, play Tommy, Tj and Blake, respectively, three guys that met randomly. Tommy is a successful screenwriter who occasionally uses his contacts for “get well,” a term they use to score a fix so that they can function.
