American Meth (2007) NR - 3 Stars

Val Kilmer narrates this documentary by filmmaker Justin Hunt who takes viewers on an up close and personal look at the life of the typical American methamphetamine user. Justin traveled from New Mexico to Portland in order to explore the toll that the drug has taken on American families. He also tries to show that it's never too late to change your life and break away from the addiction. The film takes on a very personal look when he interviews meth addicted parents James and Holly, who have four children, leaving in a trailer park trying to decide what is more important to spend their money on. Their addiction or their family and unfortunately the children are the ones to suffer.
