Timothée Chalamet completely transformed to be Nic Sheff. The movie is worthy of seeing multiple times. So many details that will only catch your eyes after second or third watch.

A great depiction of what addition is and how it affects those around you. As such, it was one of the more depressing movies I've seen in years. All the acting was exceptional! It's hard to capture emotion like that but everyone did so well!

The lack of a precipitating factor, the invisible impulses behind addiction, and the episodic nature of recovery don’t exactly lend themselves to a compelling narrative structure.

Strong, committed performances and the upsetting ring of reality anchor a highly-personal film which cycles through addiction, relapse and rehab in an episodic way, each high as inevitable as the low which follows.

As enacted here by unquestionably fine actors, this story does not emerge as compelling or convincing, and the film is aggravatingly narrow-minded in its interests. However, if one stays with it all the way to the end, it is absolutely worth sitting still for the end credits, over which is played a monologue by Nic which is the best thing in the picture.
