Over here at AfterParty, we receive an onslaught of questions from people about addiction and recovery. And well, our video series AfterParty Answers gives us an opportunity to address them. In this episode, Anna David and Danielle Stewart tell viewers their favorite movies about addiction.
This is a topic that’s been covered on the site before. Anna wrote way back when about what she felt were the most underrated movies about addiction—including Go, True Romance, The Boost and Boogie Nights—while Danielle has covered a few documentaries on the topic. (Paul Fuhr has also written about what he feels are the worst examples of recovery in movies.) There are, of course, many opinions on this topic but if you want Anna and Danielle’s complete answer, check out this vid. While the girls aren’t in any way medical professions (emphasis on “aren’t in any way medical professionals”), they are sober folks who have not only grappled with some of the issues being asked about but have also written scads of articles for this very site on them. Tune in every month to see what you, our faithful readers, want to know.
