An interesting, but somewhat aimless look at the deadly and damaging effects of meth on various areas of the U.S. It starts out really well, but the second half seems to focus on one trailer trash family in particular, which kind of grinds things down to a halt. Interesting doc though.

very good look at the meth problem in the country right now. Worth watching

The sound mixing was very bad. It was hard to hear what the narrator was saying compared to all the other loud sounds.

The first part of the documentary has a lot of interesting information and interviews. The second part of the documentary spends a long time in the trashy trailer of a meth-addicted couple and their three neglected children. This part is a real drag. These are the sort of people you avoid socializing with in real life. But if you want to finish watching the documentary, then you are stuck with these people.

I guess it was trying to show how meth ruins lives and promotes squalor. But the point was made quickly, and after that, it just became sort of a torture to watch.

Movie was ridiculous.

The focus on the beleaguered family for the last third of the movie was absurd. Meth was not the reason this family was in trouble. The movie could use a better narrator and some strong editing: There were many mistakes in spelling, grammar, and usage. All in all, the aforementioned family notwithstanding, the movie is a decent effort, but it doesn't quite get there.

Although i had no no desire to do meth before watching this movie that desire was simply reinforced after i watched this movie

A great topic but horribly horribly executed.
