I have to say that this is one of the weirdest movies I've ever seen. It is a grade A film. It was made on a low budget, but that doesn't hurt it one bit. It's about a bunch of people who rob drugstore's to get high. The leader of the group (Matt Dillon) is trying to go straight but just can't seem to get off the drugs.

This film is full of bizarre images and is very realistic on the subject of drug use. You might not expect a lot of the things in it. You might think that these drug users are bad guys for a crime that shouldn't have to be a crime. But if you think that, you are sadly mistaken. You can care for these people simply because they could be anybody you know. It is a strange journey for some people who see this but not all. The lead of the film is excellent as are the supporting actors in here. Kelly Lynch as Dillon's wife and co-hort, James Le Gros as his friend and fellow robber and Heather Graham as Le Gros's underage girlfriend.

This is one interesting movie that you should definitely see. It is a weird mind trip that will seem bizarre to some, but to others a masterpiece.

My Rating = Four Stars
