Movie Info

African shamans have used Ibogaine in their rituals for centuries, but in the US it is classified as a Schedule 1 controlled substance and illegal, so Dimitri must work in underground networks to guide addicts through the same detox that he says saved his life. I'M DANGEROUS WITH LOVE traces Dimitri's risky journey as he treats desperate drug users. It follows this man of edgy energy as he goes from one addict to the next without stopping to catch his breath. It also follows him on his own search for recovery when one session goes bad in a remote snowed-in Canadian home, and a quiet young man almost dies. Dimitri must decide whether or not to continue his mission. Is he serving the addicts or simply releasing his own demons? To find answers, Dimitri travels to Gabon, West Africa, to consult with Bwiti shamans, and puts himself through a punishing Iboga initiation. Filmmaker Michel Negroponte follows him on this journey to find his own answers.-- (C) Blackbridge Productions

It's a little strange watching a guy from Detroit dance around a modern apartment with his face painted, doing West African drug and healing rituals. But then how weird is it spending your life shooting junk into your veins?

The film, though, might have been more powerful with a little less grit.

If only Dimitri Mugianis were as worthy of our attention as director Michel Negroponte considers him.

Slant Magazine

This highly personal look at the controversial addiction-ending drug Ibogaine often veers into self-indulgence before becoming an interesting ethno-documentary at the end. But its lack of journalistic objectivity hinders real understanding of the subject.

Film Journal International

I'm Dangerous with Love isn't particularly compelling or trustworthy as a character portrait.

NYC Film Critic

A powerful, unflinchingly honest and intense experience that captivates you on a visceral level.
