It’s crazy that 30 plus years later this movie still has an accurate portrayal of the addiction cycle still seen today
Excellent drama about junkie life, great cast and performances
Holds up really well - great acting by Dillon!
This movie feels so ahead of it’s time. Great dialogue and a really fun morbid sense of humor. I was really impressed by this film.
A diet requiem for a dream. Trials and tribulations of drug addiction for those with a sensitive stomach and heart.
Fantastic performances and a great look at the power dynamics within this group of addicts.
Landmark film with a brilliant ending, but has a slower pace and is a bit dated. This doesn’t hold it back from being a modern masterpiece
Doesn't exactly paint Portland in the best light, but it told a good story, with good character development.
Not easy watching, but very well conducted.
It's very good, but it didn't show the Withdraw at all, that was kinda weird.
