Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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."
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

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.
Disclosure, author is an iboga therapist.
