I`m a big movie buff and this is one of the movies I haven't really dived into until recently. This movie deserves all the hype around it. Let me just get out the things that are obvious, the camera angles and movement are amazing one of the best I have seen. My favorite seen in this movie is when they are in the car talking about being promoted and then all hell breaks out. When he is running away from the car and that camera movement just makes you feel like you're there with him the tension is great as well. Now let’s get back to the story. It doesn't try to glamorize the drug life I don't think anyone would like to live like that, but it does amazingly show how it is to actually be out the streets and a junky. Also it has that stigma what most people have that if someone is wrong I’ll just take a pill for it. It goes into great detail of showing us how corrupt the world is while being in a place where everything is corrupt its self. In the start it makes you feel somewhat as if these people are real and are just living their life normally but then toward the end you see how much drugs really take over their lives. In the end I could keep on going on and on with this movie but I’m sure you've already heard the praise it needs. Later I will be reviewing recent films.
