Our filthy hero Gus mutters to himself, just before stealing a white Rolls Royce. He happens upon Ruby, a stunning tattoo artist he's always had a thing for, and waves her into the convertible. The misfits escape the city and into nature, sharing a joint, wondering why things used to be so much cooler in the '70s. Asthma is a modern romance that explores addiction in a fresh and honest way. She warns him not to fall in love with her, but the higher you are the harder you fall. Written by Anonymous

User Reviews

I really wish i had read the rating on here prior to watching the film...
11 April 2016 | by hedwig0109See all my reviews

though i probably wouldn't have then watched it, but that's my point. but u never know right? there are some films that get a low rating or people dislike & i think are great (not tons, but a sprinkling) & others that are very highly rated & reviewed that i think are soooo overrated! anyway, i wouldn't say this film was "bad". i don't regret seeing it per se. i regret paying 3 different times on PPV because there was always some type of issue going on. AND i love krysten ritter (though she's getting pretty typecast now, coulda been her exact "breaking bad" character, et al), & iggy pop was in it (LOVE), a lot of great actors in cameos basically. it was just kinda bleh. i was going to say nothing happened, but stuff did happen, it just was kinda pointless & didn't really make me feel anything one way or another. THAT is how i judge films, on what & how much they make me feel! along w/plot, character, storyline, acting, etc etc. cheers :)
