Heaven Knows What ★★★★★

Nr 10 on All Films I Saw 2015 (Ranked)

Part of the Stockholm Film Festival 2014

That Heaven Knows What currently holds a 5,8 score on imdb is a total joke. This is the most gut punching, authentic and realistic account of homeless, hardcore drug addicted young people that you're ever going to see.

The acting performances are flawless and I wonder how they can portray the broken lives so accurately, without being addicts themselves. This goes for the whole ensemble. Especially Arielle Holmes shines bright in the lead role.

Don't watch this movie and expect a linear storyline with a resolution, as Heaven Knows What merely offers a glimpse into a world most people will never know.

The film is brilliantly scored, with eerie and haunting electronic music, that accentuates the, already, hard to watch scenes.

Currently holds the nr 4 spot on the ranking of movies I've seen this year (roughly 500).

See it!
