Yeah?! I gave Self Medicated 5 stars. I thought the cast, directing, & script was..touching! Not a huge fan of independent movies however, Monty Lapica takes the prize! This film is a rich and personal narrative. I was completely entertained. I also enjoyed the combination of suspence moments, and the heartfelt ones. Ive noticed some of the reviews, people or critics was pretty tough on this "debut" director/actor? I suppose i can understand if i were expecting to watch a Academy winning flick, even so it should be a nominee!! Also from my understanding this is a indie film made for a low budget. It caught my interest and concerment almost immediately. I always appreciate people with a soul-fullness essence of charater that prevails lifes adversities. This movie could very well be the next valediction a person needs to hear. I love how he incorparated the black "homeless" guy....man!!! Good stuff. Must watch or its just not your thing.
