Movie Info

Directed by Michael Tully, the low-key, occasionally darkly humorous drama Cocaine Angel stars Damian Lahey as Scott, a man dealing with a severe cocaine addiction. The minimally plotted film features plainly documented events in his desultory day-to-day existence including losing his job, attempting to visit with his daughter, and always looking to score more of the white powder that controls his life.

Critic Reviews for Cocaine Angel

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

Pitch-perfect central perf (by scribe and co-producer Damian Lahey), total lack of dramatic artifice and surreally situational humor make for a minor-key vignette of unmistakable, if unstable, authenticity.

We may learn nothing new about the grasp of addiction, but the movie's lean 75 minutes is at least a genuinely fast track to oblivion.

New York Times
Top Critic

Movies about addicts are a dime a dozen, but Cocaine Angel does its own thing, mixing humor with bleakness and resisting the too-common urge to romanticize addiction.

Top Critic

Scrappy and defiantly deglamorized, this chronicle of a couple of long, useless days in the life of a down-and-out coke addict oozes miserable authenticity without giving you a reason to care.

If this film was intended as a joke, consider me fooled.
