Movie Info

A drug runner finds his life is in danger when he becomes hooked on his own merchandise in this drama. Paul (Josh Evans) is a young hoodlum who falls in with Mr. Ball (Michael Madsen), a crime kingpin marketing a new street drug that he tells Paul is "more addictive than air." With few prospects, Paul agrees to act as Mr. Ball's bagman to help deliver the "product," but he makes the mistake of trying the new drug and soon he's hooked. Paul fails to make his deliveries and later becomes implicated in the murder of his friend and fellow drug runner D (Sticky Fingaz); now he has both the law and Mr. Ball's enforcers on his trail, with only his girlfriend (Charis Michelsen), a fellow addict, on hand to help him. The Price of Air also features Dick Van Patten, Alexis Arquette, and Michelle Phillips; British electronic music star Goldie wrote the film's original score and also played a supporting role.

Critic Reviews for The Price of Air

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Eight Is Enough patriarch Dick Van Patten plays a baddie with a fondness for S&M (yes, you read that right).

January 2, 2007 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Amateurish garbage about a would-be drug courier on the run.

December 8, 2002 | Rating: 1/5

The sort of independent film that makes you crave Hollywood.

March 18, 2001 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

Largely incoherent, slung-together, low-budget mess of a movie.
