    I've heard of it, but that was through this kid that I really despise. But movies that revolve around drugs are always a good watch.....

    I just saw the Salton Sea the other day....what a fucking good movie that was.

    spun round

    If you liked Fear and Loathing and Spun try watching Requiem for a Dream. Pretty decent flick.

    go rent this bro, I dont really wanna give away the movie, but it details some of the usage and lives of speed users,

    from imdb.com
    _
    After the murder of his beloved wife, Danny Parker (Val Kilmer) is set adrift in a world where nothing is as it seems. On his journey he befriends slacker Jimmy the Fin (Peter Sarsgaard) and becomes involved in rescuing his neighbor Colette (Debra Kara Unger) from her own demons. Danny is antagonized by undercover narcotics agents (Anthony Lapaglia and Doug Hutchison) and sadistic dealer Pooh Bear (Vincent D'Onfronio).

    great flick.

    I agree, big difference.
    I know some meth freaks that
    almost killed themselves last week.
    Sad, really sad.
    That movie is pretty on point.
    Do a search, there is a topic on this.
    I still have yet to see Requiem...no time.

    time is money
