“Harrowing.” - Vincent Canby, THE NEW YORK TIMES
Forget TRAINSPOTTING. Forget REQUIEM FOR A DREAM. STORY OF A JUNKIE is the real deal. This hybrid of documentary and fictional narrative follows young John Spacely as he arrives in New York’s East Village, hoping to make his fortune and find his identity. Instead, John finds himself trapped in the dark and desperate world of drugs. This frank, unflinching, and nonjudgemental portrayal of heroin addiction is now available for theatrical screenings for the first time in decades.
