    It was one of many recovery theme movies that I added to my library. While shows like "28 Days" portray a more pop culture interpretation of addiction, this movie was the first I saw that got itself raw & dirty; real. Since then I have been exposed to some others, "Trainspotting," "Requiem for a Dream," which were truly incredible cinematic experiences.

    Heart wrenching, honest look at addiction and the struggles that continue regardless on one's stage of recovery. Beautifully filmed, wonderfully acted for low budget.

    Amazing job, especially for a first film! Captures a very realistic vision of homelessness and addiction in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

    In depth look at addiction (no shallow romanticising or shock and awe stuff).. A story of friendship, hope and grief... Never seen such an honest portrayal of drug addiction.

    The actors squeezed every bit of good drama they could into this awful after school special script.

    Amazing story! A very realistic look at addiction from the eyes of an addict and someone in recovery. It really brought out the struggle to find some way to escape their loneliness and pain.

    it portrayed the life of drugs so realistically and showed how much it can control a persons life.

    Excellent portrayal of addiction through the eyes of an addict and someone in recovery and their shared struggle to escape the profound pain and loneliness we all feel inside.
