A well-made thriller about drugs and clowns
If you’ve ever been to the city of Vancouver BC, you’d know that the city has a very tangible drug problem and this Canadian film tells a true story of a simple, day-to-day heroin addict got stupidly mistaken for an international drug dealer and sentenced to life in Thailand. The film basically manifests how the police and government were incapable of dealing with such matters and how they made an absolute clownery of this case. 30 years later, the issue still remains, much worse today than it was at 1992, the year which the film’s story is based on.
This is a well-made investigative thriller that divides it’s story into three parts with different narratives and moves them simoultaneously until they are pieced together and complete the picture. We get to see the events from the policemen, the young drug addict and from a journalist named Victor Malarek (Josh Harnett) who’ll investigate the incident afterwards. The technicals are just there to aid telling the story so you wouldn’t find anything bold about the camerawork, production design, score, etc. In my opinion the film can be 20 minutes shorter without damaging the material as it can be a little boring near the end, but it manages what it intends to and that’s to inform, to retell the story and to make sure it would never happen again in this country.
unconvincing at first? i know
First of all, Great performance !! Josh Harnett was delivered a really good performance. So do the rest of the actor.
i loved the story, its gonna pump you chess up. i’m going to say that not everybody gonna like this story, but for me its pretty good. They way they executed all of it was brilliant. you can tell that this not that movie with a ‘budget’. But the fact that they still doing a good job was a PLUS.
Great detail for me for making that 80′ vibes
