The documentary Dope Sick Love on Amazon Prime is a stark look at the reality of drug addiction. In a time when documentaries are more often than not driven by political agenda, DSL is just a documentary. You know, like they are supposed to be.
There is no narrator driving the story. There is no leading interview questions. It is simply a camera following two different drug addicted couples. In the film they simply document the lives, struggles, victories and defeats of these people.
It is gritty. It is hard to watch at times. It is sad. It is a film that any experimenting with drugs should see. No, I don’t think it will magically enlighten anybody nor stop them from doing drugs. But, if it makes one person walk away from drugs, it has done great.
