Product Description

I'M DANGEROUS WITH LOVE is an underground adventure that traces one man's risky journey into the world of shamanic ritual. Dimitri Mugianis had been addicted to heroin for 20 years when a single dose of ibogaine, a powerful hallucinogen derived from the root of a West African plant, stopped his addiction cold.

Filmmaker Michel Negroponte enters the ibogaine subculture and follows Dimitri over three years, as he takes drug users through the same detox that saved his life. Problem is, ibogaine is an illegal drug in the U.S. When Negroponte tries ibogaine himself, he experiences firsthand its propensity to "break open the head."

Review

Bursts on the screen like a circus fire. A movie you'll never forget. --Chris Hegedus and D A Pennebaker

A character study and revelation of a possible answer to addiction...(it) rocks. --Ronnie Scheib, Variety

Drug addiction has long been a popular subject for documentaries, but few have conveyed its nightmarish aspects more vividly than Michel Negroponte's "I'm Dangerous With Love."... riveting. --Hollywood Reporter

IDWL has much to say about the lack of genuine "treatment" for hardcore addictions. A typical "rehab" for a junkie or crack user is nothing but a place to be ill while you wait to get back out to the street. Rehabs fail to provide the foundational shift that results in a chance at problematic drug use cessation.
Ibogaine, the real star of this documentary, actually gives addicts a chance by interrupting their cravings and keeping them from withdrawal. But it's a Schedule I substance, with the same legal status as the drugs it is used to treat. And the scheduling also indicates that ibogaine is "prone to abuse" and "has no medicinal application"---neither claim will be believed by any casual observer of this film.
IDWL represents a great opportunity to spread the word about ibogaine. Sure, it's a study of a charismatic front-man who advocates and risks himself for the promotion of the medicine. But its' real impact is on the bottom line of how we can deal with addictions, and a compassionate way to work with addicts.

This film not only further informed me of an incredible natural medicine to treat drugs addicts (Iboga) but yanked at my heart, shocked and kept me as breathless as the main character. It is impossible to not fall for Dimitri's wild journey from the streets of NY to the West African jungle, as he helps addicts one by one, as he was once helped. You have to see it.

This movie has something for everybody - love, chaos, adventure, danger, trouble, victory... Dimitri's example makes the cost of the American Dream apparent as he shows how much good one person can do right where he is. His compelling example puts the laws of love before the laws of men, where they belong. Dimitri sets an original example of a model citizen as he claims the "land of the free and home of the brave" with passionate effort. Anyone with a loved one who is facing the perils of addiction will also want to watch this movie for the solutions it reveals, especially with the unique addiction interrupting drug ibogaine from the African iboga shrub.

Less of a documentary on ibogaine, more of a character study of one man, yet this film manages to teach and inspire. A pleasure, I have watched it several times and caught something new each go round. Both the film maker and the subject have much to be proud of.

Honestly, this documentary did keep me interested. It did get kinda wiggy with the African voodoo part. I did feel the principal of the story was believable, but why is this "drug" still undercover if it indeed helps recovery for the addict? God knows America and elsewhere needs this "drug" to help with drug addiction. It has been written that there is a cure for all the ills we suffer in plants, if we just knew how to select and process the plant medicinally.

This was a very in depth look at a lifestyle that much of society doesn't comprehend. It is even more so about human beings so desperate to escape this deadly lifestyle they will go to yet another extreme for a chance to leave this demon called addiction. Very bold & enlightening film!

Wonderfully done. When the powers that be are finally tossed from their ivory towers, we will all be able to enjoy our true nature devoid of big pharma and filled with nature's delights. Ibogaine, Ayahuasca, and Marijuana will be able to teach without constraints. About time.
