Gibson is successful in illuminating the constant struggles of a user and the lasting impact drugs have on one's life, though the film does drag at times and can abruptly shift from subject to subject, disrupting the narrative flow.
A deeply inspiring look at ordinary people striving to defy the odds.
Offering no pat solutions, Gibson is content for us to understand that the unconventional lives of his subjects make them no less worthy of dignity and respect.
This documentary approach to filming from the inside gets us far deeper into the complicated reality of drug dependence and recovery than standard television-style docs can reach.
The 90-minute doc, shot in several formats over at least five years, centres on three Torontonians who have survived well enough to describe their journeys with some clarity.
Filmed over the course of five years, and letting people tell their own stories in their own words, The Stairs is a work with deep compassion for those who've made their way back from the depths of addiction.
The Stairs provides an opportunity to showcase this important district in Toronto, providing a means to begin the conversation about just how myriad aspects of mental health, crime, police presence and addiction work within the urban setting.
