This is a very well done portrayal of the degradation of a person who has taken to very heavy drugs and it's effects on those around him. It is also a record of loyalty and love of one person to the other until even that is stretched beyond its limits, through the endless programs of detoxification. 'Smack' will never let go of an addict--it seems to go to molecular level and can't be gotten out.
The story was well told by the actors, particularly by Thure Lindhardt and Zachary Booth. The final scenes were, as they should be,
an ending as it had to be, Erik finally realising that he could do no more. In fact, he had well and truly found that Paul wasn't the person he loved at all. Paul had been a stranger for some time--Erik's friends had tried to tell him--and as we all know, love makes one want to overcome all difficulties, and it takes a very strong person to finally admit he has failed. But at least he had tried for 9 years. At the end I was, hoping that Erik would find find someone else. I wonder if he did? I liked this film for its honesty.

Groundbreaking within the realm of the Sundance Independent film category. One might think little happens but it is the story of thousands of gay couples who meet and perhaps make sex the basis of the relationship. I wish I had seen a little more of the relationship that creates the great love of the main character for the boyfriend who falls into the all too common pattern of sex and drugs. He was investigating the new sexuality that he only recently unmasked. Our main character had been sexually active with men since the age of 13.
The film reads seemlessly through years that mark the relationship. Beautifully acted with enormous honesty.

Very real in the depiction of struggles with drug abuse and staying in a destructive relationship. I have personally witnessed some of these scenes.

How long can a relationship live through enabling each other. I don't want to away the whole story line. However, can love see a couple through everything. See the movie to find out the ending. No news for a therapist but great education re: general public.

This film portrays a somewhat negative look at a particular gay relationship involving drug and alcohol addiction, infidelity, dishonesty and a gamut of other character flaws. However the writing is good along with the acting and the creator of this film brought it all together in this (I'll watch it again) movie.

Professionally made with keen eye and craftsmanship of film making with mature directing, scripting, editing, and a perfect soundtrack. Moves past the traditional gay culture stereo types to a neutral ground of non-judgemental observation of gay life grown up past the bars and tragic illnesses to the all too common human ground of needs expressed in coping mechanisms and relationships.

Even being slow and somewhat disjointed at times, it was interesting to watch the relationships unfold and change over time.
