Filmmaker Todd Ahlberg explores the harrowing consequences of crystal methamphetamine addiction by speaking by the very men who were seduced by "Tina" as the drug became a prominent fixture at circuit parties in the early-1990s. From the addict who abandoned his car at Los Angeles International airport to party in the city for two years to another who is slowly breaking his mother's heart, Ahlberg's film makes no attempts to sugar coat the issue, and features graphic scenes of drug use. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

First off, if you are a recovering addict and are at all susceptible to triggers, DO NOT RENT THIS!
This is a film for people who have little actual experience with drugs and drug addicts. I think this included the filmmaker, or he would have realized that it's very dangerous for addicts to see things like actual drug injecting and smoking. Ahlberg studiously avoids showing any of the dark and black side of meth use, the rotted teeth, the suicidal depressions, the unbelievable paranoias. All his actors have great teeth, healthy skin, and look like doing meth is no more than having a cup of coffee. NOT! In the directors commentary it's revealed that one of the main interview-ees who spouts on and on about his recovery and the mess of the circuit/party scene was actually high during the filming of the interview.
If you want to see a MORE thought provoking movie regarding a documentry about METH see 'Rock Bottom: Gay Men & Meth'. A much BETTER documentry. I found it very problematic that some of the men interviewed talked as if they would go back and do it again ...and does Meth only affect white gay male....MMMMM?
