| Compelling Doc on Important Topic
This is one great documentary. I couldn't stop watching as the subjects and their stories are so compelling that it's impossible to turn away. It's about the current opioid epidemic that's sweeping the country and taking lives of otherwise healthy productive people. The hook of the drug is insidious and grabs people like a Venus Fly Trap. The irony is that many if not most of the cases could be avoided if the doctors and hospitals that dispense the drugs so freely were more cautious about giving them out and providing adequate guidelines as to the potential hazards involved. In other words many of the cases of addiction which sometimes led to death, could be avoided. At one point I had tears running down my face as I was so moved by the stories of loss and sadness that all I wanted to do was hug my kid with the thought of putting a protective wall around her. Thank you HBO and kudos to the production team. Well done.
