I truly did not expect this to be as good as it was.. It went on kind of slow at first, then some of the friendships seemed to just magically vanish.. really touching characters as they seemed like good people initially but due to the early addiction to opiates its always pretty much a guarantee that its going to clamp onto your soul until you be honest enough with yourself. I used to be a Junkie for 2 years and I was homeless for a small part of that. I know exactly what he was going through in so many scenarios and although this documentary ends on a seemingly light note its super sad to hear about how he hung himself shortly after this was completed and widely released. =[
