    Based on the seventies novel by Hubert Selby Jr (who also co-wrote the screenplay), this adaptation is a hard-hitting twin-narrative of a mother and son on their personal spiral to self-destruction through personal drug use.

    I originally saw this movie when it came out and at the time, the editing and soundtrack really added something to the movie, upping the pace of the film and keeping the audience from losing interest in the increasingly disturbing and depressing narrative. Unfortunately when I revisited the film again recently these same techniques seem rather tired and unexceptional. For the first time viewer, this film is captivating and the DVD making of features are in-depth making this DVD a bargain for its price, but if you"re looking for a DVD-gem to watch again and again, this is not the best option out there.
