This film, it is the truth . . .
9 October 2013 | by charles000See all my reviews

Whatever one might think about the content and context of this film, it is the truth. This is one of those exceedingly rare examples of filmcraft where everything was delivered about as perfectly as possible. The characters, the scenarios . . . the acting and direction is absolutely spot on.

I know this world, the tweeker universe and the absolute nightmare that comes with it. The story that is utilized as the delivery platform is very credible, the characters as delivered are as real as it gets. If anything, aside from the entertainment aspect that this film might deliver, this should be an educational film for anyone who is even remotely tempted to step into this universe.

Trust me on this one . . . it's a place you don't want to be, and I can't imagine a better delivery vehicle to get this point across than the content of this film.

Not even a nanosecond of hesitation . . . 10 stars, and then some.
