A friend of mine had been an addict for years. She told me she never saw a better movie about drugs.
Very dark and yet beautifully filmed. A haunting soundtrack. Top notch actors. I quite liked that movie.

Meaningful insights into addiction are hard to come by. This movie made it into my shortlist, together with Bulgakov's superb "Morphine" short story.

I think Trainspotting was better. At least, it was fun to watch and the ending was satisfying...

Trainspotting is an excellent movie too, in my opinion. It's just not the same take on the subject.

Personally, l like movies with happy endings. That was miserable... and why so many naked scenes? That was pointless!
The most stupid part of the film was Sarah's obsession with the red dress. Instead of that, she became mad and ended up to a phsycological hospital (because of the drugs). She could just have wore another dress!

In my view the naked scenes were not gratuitous. Rather a way to express the vulnerability and isolation of the characters.
There is no arguing about the end not being a happy one, but that's the point of the movie.

Misafir

And that's why l didn't like it, lol.

I just saw a movie Jodhaa Akbar for the 2nd time.
It is both beautiful and meaningful - if you saw it, let me know what you thought.

Where are the magnificent leaders who practice and preach tolerance?

I guess few people here watched it, if any, and I'm sure nobody nowdays is interested in an old soviet movie, but nevertheless I'd like to tell you about some movie.

It's "The Evil Spirit of Yambuy", this movie was made in Soviet Union in 1979. Although it's so old, I admire it untill today. It reminds me of some Stephen King books, in which the story evolves slowly in the begining, when the author is making a scrupulous introduction to people and places, then some mystery events occur, the plot is thickening and at the end you kind of sitting with your mouth open and getting shivers up your spine. In that regard this movie is a quite unusual one for soviet movie-making back then. Here is a short description of the movie:

Several members of mapping expedition in Eastern Siberia mysteriously disappear in Yambuy mountains. The native Evenki tribesmen speak about an evil spirit that lives on Yambuy. Then it turns out that the "evil spirit" is a monstrous man-eating brown bear. Fedoseev, the head of the expedition, and Kararbakh, the old Evenki hunter, go to find and kill the beast. The movie is based on real events that occurred in late 1940s, and the main characters of the movie are real people. The Evenki characters, including Kararbakh, are played by non-professional actors.

I can't recomend you to watch it, 'cause there are lots of other thrillers nowdays, but in case you got interested, here it is where you can watch it with english captions:

The movie is translated to many other languages, so if desired, you can find it in internet. Regular smile

Is it related to this story ? (although it happened in 1959, in Northern Ural)

No, definitly not, it is a different story. To be honest, I never wondered if it's a true story about events on Yambuy. I can't assert that it happened in real. Dyatlov Pass incident is a different mystery, that remains unsolved untill now.
