Explosive, confrontational and highly engrossing...
30 November 2004 | by aidanhellSee all my reviews

Nettie Wild (director of A Place Called Chiapas) uses guerilla film-making techniques & dynamic editing, in telling the story of one of Canada's most urgent problems. Wild focuses on Vancouver's East Side, Canada's ground zero of heroin use, and site of the highest HIV infection rate in N.America. Fix spotlights charismatic addict Dean Wilson and city worker Ann Livingston, capturing the enormous scope of the problem facing the two advocates, as they struggle to open a safe-injection centre while feeding one another's emotional addictions. Explosive, confrontational and highly engrossing- Fix sidesteps sentimentality and rips open our hypocritical stance about addicts and drug addiction. Don't let the subject matter scare you. This is a hopeful,honest, and must-see film.
