Critic Reviews for The Stairs
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.
