Kafka is straight while Daniel happens to be gay. The young men fall in love, believing that their love can bridge anything, despite their difference in sexuality and Kafka's drug-taking. Daniel does not regret his love for Kafka, who tries to love him back against his nature. But a flashback memory from Kafka's past makes it difficult for their relationship to work. It turns out that their addiction to love proves more fatal than the drugs they use to explore the boundaries of their friendship.

The film is rated level III

This movie is not for everyone. It's an art--a masterpiece--from start to end. However, this movie just might not be for everyone.

Dealing with trauma is hard. Using drugs as an escape only makes it worse. We aren't all fortunate to have good support during the hard times. But, we all are trying to live while we can. However, for some, it might no longer be about living but surviving.

Don't watch it expecting a love story. The movie is about pain, suffering, and trying to survive those sh*t. It's a hard-to-watch movie--dealing with things we don't understand always is. If you aren't up for a good challenge, then skip.

STORY: Confusing, drug-induced nightmare. Either I need to be high or a former meth user to get it; not sure. This isn't the typical guy-saves-other-guy-from-horrible-drug-addition-live-happily-ever-after movie. In this movie, drugs is greater than love.

ACTING/CAST: Well, a lot of anger, hatred, self-loathing, portrayed well.

MUSIC: Um, don't remember.

REWATCH VALUE: Not really.

OVERALL: Parts of it are okay, but it seems like the movie tries to be much bigger than it can be. I say watch it, it's not bad, but not great either.
