Loved It!
19 June 2006 | by chelebug0511See all my reviews

From an ex-tweeker as well. Fortunately I kicked the habit too. When I watched the film, I laughed mostly. Because I'm thinking, 'oh my god, I did that', 'I looked like that', 'How did my family not know?'. One of the best films I've seen. I agree though, most people don't appreciate this film. But most people aren't very sympathetic towards drug users. If you like this film you must see 'Requiem for a Dream'. I viewed it in my Avant Garde film class in college recently. It is obviously about drugs but it's more serious than Spun. I honestly would've cried had I not been at school. So check it out, you will enjoy.... guaranteed! I need 10 lines so.... the soundtrack is really good as well.
