Movie Info

Directed by Greg Williams, The Anonymous People features prominent people who are living publicly in long-term recovery, like former NBA star Chris Herren, award-winning actress Kristen Johnston (3rd Rock From the Sun, The Exes), Miss USA 2006 Tara Conner, best-selling author William Cope Moyers, former congressmen Patrick Kennedy and Jim Ramstad - and many others. Their brave testimonies dispel long-standing clichés about addiction and recovery.(C) Kino

Almost incoherent.

Feels less like dynamic, insightful filmmaking and more like a well-intentioned PSA.

However good the intentions, this sluggish documentary about the stigma of substance abuse and the barriers to recovery never comes close to catching fire.

Leads with its considerable heart, but can't summon the sort of order and focus necessary to convert generalized sympathy into stronger lasting memory or impulse for action.

This passionate polemic might very well go down in history for transforming public opinion about the recovery movement.

Heartfelt and provocative, but not thorough or well-rounded enough.

A well-meaning but uninspiring documentary lobbying for treatment, not incarceration, for addicts
