R | | Drama
The drug-induced utopias of four Coney Island people are shattered when their addictions run deep.
The word "heroin" is never actually said by any of the characters in the film.
Now we come to step three. This... drives... most... people... crazy.
When the characters take Heroin, either injected or snorted, the sequence showing their eyes dilating is inaccurate. Opiates produce a constricting of the pupil. However, the dilating is correct when the characters are using Ecstasy and Cocaine.
The opening credits each disappear as if being melted like heroin.
Available in both the uncut, unrated version and an edited R-rated version (mainly for conservative rental stores like Blockbuster.)
$64,770 (USA) (8 October 2000)
