  • Shocking Documentary. The best Louis Theroux doco i have seen.

    I am surprised to see no one had reviewed this yet. This documentary left me with a sick feeling my stomach. As disturbing as it was, it is a must see. I knew of the Crystal Meth epedemic in the US, but the affect on families is unebelievable. Louis, mainly focuses on long term addicts who are either in Rehab, or are active users. The active users that he focuses on seem to be blinded... for example a 20 something year old male who is seen smoking meth outside with his friends has his two children inside watching TV at midnight. Louis asks the addict if he sees anything wrong in the picture... whether this might affect his children at all. The addict says "oh... this is nothing compared to some of the people I know". As if that is meant to make us feel better about his situation.

    Most of the addicts he meets have children... at least 5 or more, usually living with the grandparents or with child services. It gives you a basic idea of what an addict will do... just to get high one more time.

    It is definitely one of the most shocking documentaries I have seen. And I urge anyone to watch it.moreless
