Meth Head is a tragic but moving story
Meth Head is the story of a young gay man Kyle, played by Lucas Haas (Witness, Inception) who takes crystal meth at a party and finds himself spiralling out of control from the addiction shortly after. His loving partner, Julius, played by Wilson Cruz (Party of Five, Red Band Society) tries desperately to save him from himself. Unfortunately, the draw of the drug and the new friends he has acquired takes him down this dark path of destruction. His new friends, Maia and Dusty, are portrayed brilliantly by Necar Zadegan (24, Elena Undone) and Blake Berris (Days of Our Lives, Crazy Bitches). The bond they all develop over the use of this life altering drug is very raw and incredibly deep. The damage that is caused is devastating. There are several supporting actors who are exceptional from Barbara Niven (Cedar Cove, A Perfect Ending) to Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down) and Theo Rossi (Sons of Anarchy). This is a very powerful film that I believe needs to be seen. Jane Clark, Writer/Director, takes you on a gritty ride into the depths of despair created by the use of crystal meth. Her careful direction allows the viewer to feel an emotional connection with Kyle. The story she has written tells an accurate account of how bad things can happen to good people through drug addiction in my opinion. I highly recommend this film. You won't be disappointed.
