small movie with limited potential
2 May 2013 | by dragokinSee all my reviews

Probably the strongest quality of Cocaine Angel is that it might motivate you to make a movie yourself. Well, if not that much, at least it might motivate you to do something creative, be it taking a photo, writing a short story or poem or merely assembling another blog entry.

Produced with limited means, Cocaine Angel tells a simple, mostly linear, story. Some of the actors are obviously amateurs, but this adds to its charm. And we'll need all positive vibrations we can get, since we'll be following a drug addict during his regular day.

Personally, i'm wondering why it is appealing to portray drug addicts, alcoholics or maniacs of all kinds and create work of art in an attempt to uncover some kind of beauty. With Cocaine Angel, though, we end up with a movie that is neither strong enough as an anti-drugs message nor extreme enough to show beauty in filth and garbage of an addict's life...
