The Panic in Needle Park

The Panic in Needle Park ★★★★½

Dealing with a love doomed due to herion addiction - Al Pacino as Bobby and Kitty Winn as Helen give two complex and possible all-time great performances in this no holes barred gritty and realistic Jerry Schatzberg drama. No music was needed to try and force emotion, nothings to flashy with it's cinematography but it's simplicity works powerfuly. Nothing is watered down, when herion takes over lives no one can completely be trusted and not much hope can realistically be expected and this film deals with it's subject matter masterfully.
