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.

  1. Denis Johnson ‘s book turned movie called “Jesus’ Son” exposes a world of delusion be it high or not? It’s great! Lots of early career work from great actors also.

    Denis was my close friend for a time and has passed on. His life documented both sides of the centerline. Coming and going.

  2. Marti Schimmel on

    You guys forgot the old movies – Days of Wine and Roses OMG! That is a tragic and hopeful movie all in one. The Lost Weekend – I so related to that one and reminded me of how grateful I am to be sober and living a rich and full life. Love your blog and website. Thank you for all you do! Mart xo
