Originally intended to be a documentary entitled "The Cook" about Methamphetamine cooks (makers of the drug) and its dealers and abusers. Instead, the project became a screenplay based on three days in the life of the film's creator/writer/co-producer, Will De Los Santos as he drove a methamphetamine cook around Eugene, Oregon, for three days in the winter of 1995.

I saw this film at the 2002 Toronto International Film Festival. Boasting a raft of young talent (Jason Schwartzman, Patrick Fugit, Mena Suvari, Brittany Murphy), this is a frantic tale about a group of methamphetamine addicts. Raunchy, disturbing, and often very very funny. The pace does tend to wear out the viewer, though. Since we saw the "unrated" cut, expect the final "R" version to be more manageable in length. Brittany Murphy and John Leguizamo do amazing work here. And the use of sound is quite jarring and effective, too.
