Good movie about addiction
Verified purchase
It was a good movie about addiction, shows how it can happen to anyone. I didn't realize that it was a true story until it was over and that made me appreciate that much more.
One of the main things to take away from this movie is that nothing is going to make an addict quit. When they feel that they've had enough, then they'll quit, and you never know what it's going to be that causes them to quit, they'll do it when they're ready. The best thing that a person can do for an addict is to be patient, help them to stay alive, and wait.

The story gave a true insight into the life of the main character. The movie takes unexpected turns and keeps you wondering is this going to end badly or is he going have a wake up call. With what's going on in today's world it's a relevant story. It's a worthwhile viewing, however the content is too intense for children. And most likely too graphic for most teens, unless you want to teach them about addiction and how life could be. For those with addiction the movie can be inspirational.

just don't.

just another story about a white man and his problems, one so clearly enamored of himself. shallow plot and zero character development. misogynistic and just, ugh, awful. but the recurring images of "heroin" with each injection did become comical! hahaha

Worth the watch but not what I had waited for and not at all what I expected. However, I did enjoy the entertainment and the story.
