The worst movie of its era, without doubt.
19 February 2006 | by petemetzgerSee all my reviews

This movie is all about cocaine, and I mean ALL about cocaine. For example, not only is this story about cocaine, but it is reputed to have been made under the influence of cocaine. Such story line as it has is so dull, that only being on cocaine could improve it, and I doubt even that. The main character, the good guy, is a drugged-out drug lawyer who is persecuted by the law solely for being too good at his job. That really annoys his persecutors, the bad guys, so they have a beef which causes them to bend the rules a little so as to nail the lawyer on a trumped up drug charge. This fact is presented as it it were some new kind of world class injustice, ranking right up there with Hitler and Stalin. But so what? The story is based on the experiences of a real person, a drug lawyer named Michael Metzger, who appears just for a moment, stoned in a crowd scene. This might have become a cult movie but it won't because there are too few people like this crowd to make a cult. Moreover,their lifestyles are so self-destructive, that not many of them could have survived long enough to produce living offspring.
