Storyline

There's no pusher standing by to give him a fix, no doctors or nurses to help him, no clinic to check into. He's cared for, instead, by three of his closest friends - and their video camera - in a remote cabin, 500 miles away from his home in the streets of inner-city St. Louis. These men have traveled to the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee on a noble, yet dangerous mission: to help Johnson kick his habit the hard way. This shocking REEL LIFE documentary follows them on their heart-wrenching journey. Tough love reaches new depths as HairKutt attempts to escape the cabin while delirious, and then deteriorates into a life-threatening stage of withdrawal.

Excellent Documentary on Drug Addiction
1 November 2017 | by ravishah-02See all my reviews

I was looking for movies on drug addiction and I had found 4 good movies.From which I discover "HairKutt" as the best one. Love this documentary on heroin addiction although some scenes are difficult to watch but yes you can see the 100% natural and realism in whole documentary. Bryant Johnson is the drugs addicted person and his 3 friends done the exceptional job to try to save his life. This social documentary "HairKutt" is the must watch documentary. Curtis Elliot had done the great work and thanks for bringing such social documentary for mankind.
