Kyle Peoples never wanted to be the man he has become in his 30s, an accountant stuck in a dead end job, with a lover who is more successful than he and a family that doesn't get him at all. So when a night of partying leads to a new family of friends and fun, Kyle sees an opportunity for escape from reality. But Kyle's new friendship with Maia and Dusty and the trio's love of crystal meth eventually cost Kyle his job, his companion, his home and his family. Kyle's escape becomes his trap, the party is an illusion and the crystal is slowly killing him, physically and psychologically. When he finally bottoms out and is no longer the young man his father once boasted about with pride, Kyle must choose: life or meth.Written by
Based on true stories Meth Head cleverly takes you into the downward spiral of drug use, not glorifying it at all. We all have a little or even a lot of Kyle in us which makes this movie even more powerful. Lucas Haas is outstanding in the lead role showing a boyishness & gentleness that is impossible not to like, as does Blake Berris, in fact the whole cast deliver sterling performances. Director Jane Clark has done a superb job with everything about this movie, & the haunting music of Curt Smith compliments the scenes it covers. Do yourself a favour & see it, especially if you have teenage kids that might think Meth is okay after shows such as Breaking Bad.
