Movie Info

Filmmaker Justin Hunt leads viewers on a cross-country journey straight into the heart of the American methamphetamine epidemic in this illuminating documentary narrated by actor Val Kilmer. Troubled by the proliferation of methamphetamine addiction in recent years, Hunt traveled from the arid planes of New Mexico to the inner-city squalor of Portland in order to explore the toll that the drug has taken on American families and show that it's never too late to try and rescue a loved one. The voyage takes a decidedly personal turn as Hunt visits with meth addicted parents James and Holly, whose four children speak candidly about the effect their parent's addiction has had on their upbringing.

Audience Reviews for American Meth

It was sort of a rambling mess, but it did expose some really stark truths that this country has long been ignoring. We have a serious drug problem that the criminal justice system seems only to be making worse.

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.
