Chasing their next hit
28 September 2004 | by felicity-11See all my reviews

Excellent account of a group of people drawn together in the never ending chase for their next hit. It draws together characters who have just given up, just starting on a path to destruction, people who have already begun a path to crime. Nobody ever considers pulling out they just keep going. The journey includes overdoses, burglary, speed freaks and the blockaid methadone program that became popular in the 70s. The characters seem real and the low quality of the acting only makes them more real. Guys who have to have their hits before the girls, no sex relationships and other reality bites add to the quality of the script. An Excellent film that shows Australians can produce worthwhile films in the drug/road movie genre.
