American Meth Reviews
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.
About halfway through, the film decides to focus on a skanky hetero couple whose squawkings and jabberings are made even more unbearable (and the trailer-esque dialect less discernable) by 5 or so little brats running around in diapers whining, crying and fighting all the while. No wonder they turned to meth. If you are in the mood for a healthy dose of superiority to lift the spirits of your mediocre life- skip American 'Meh' and just watch a couple re-runs of Intervention or Hoarders. That always does the trick. One star for this dud!
