Are there any good movies about addiction? - July 26th 2009, 10:05 AM

Hello, I am searching for films about drug addiction and I was wondering if someone had suggestions. I've already seen Candy (an excellent film though it may be triggering), but that's pretty much it. Much appreciated. Thanks.

The basketball diaries along with Drugstore Cowboy are the best movies I have seen in a long time.

Movies, no, but for documentary wise, I would check out the television show "Intervention" which comes on A&E. You can find these episodes on youtube. They contain drug usage and language which may be triggering or upsetting to some users.

May also want to check out the movie "Blow" with Johnny Depp.

I don't know whether you want reliable source films, or not.

In any case:

Trainspotting
Requiem For A Dream
Sid & Nancy (?)

...they're all i can think of right now.
