TV Junkie Reviews:

I caught the movie at it's Sundance Movie Festival Premiere where it one a unique jury prize. I was blown away by the honesty of Rick Kirkham's video diaries and the non-obtrusive nature of the editing that the director's imposed on the film. It felt like I was watching one uncut take that literally went on for 30 years. There was no emotion forced on the storyline another than what played out in front of the camera. On the another hand instead of a standard documentary it felt very much like a narrative movie with no voice over and very several cards to explain the story. Like life there is no build up of melody before a large moment and no slow motion. Life happens and it is over, both the nice and the terrible in a split second. It is our choices that define our existence. Rick chose never to watch his footage and he never learned from his life, I'm glad we were able to.Interestingly we watched the movie again lately with a huge group at AFI Fest. The slash was different, tighter and more focused. While I cant say you what I missed from the earlier slash I do know that a diary where Rick confesses his attempted murder of a family member really spiced up the last several mins of the film. From what I heard at the Q and A HBO will be showing this in March as part of an 11 part addiction series. If the rest of the series is this nice I'll be watching HBO in March.


I happened to stumble on this film on HBO while channel surfing. Got sucked into it. Man, did I receive sucked into it. Never heard of this guy Rick Kirkham but did I realize that whatever mediocre, normal, family life I have is worth so much. This film is true and everything in it is as close to reality as you can get. The film shows how his wife sticks by him (longer than I expected), his children see him self destruct, his career go down the toilet and yeah, then its the drugs. And yeah all this was caused by his self-destructive nature but I took more than just the obvious. All in all, if you are feeling a tiny weak on life and you feel luck has not not been your side, spend the 75 mins to watch this movie. It will create you appreciate it.


I'm normally quite dubious about folks who movie themselves because I wonder what it is that they are filming themselves for. I know this is perhaps a bit ironic coming from someone who continually writes down his opinions and puts them into the public domain for free, but hey, here we are. For all the countless blogs etc out there the message is often clear that there is only a tiny amount worth paying attention to where most are somehow massaging ego, picturing themselves bigger than they are or perhaps just full of the belief that folks will wish to see them.With Rick Kirkham I was in tiny doubt that here was a boy who is full of himself to a mission and would rather movie his life than just live it. A strange man, he tries to recreate wars seemingly so that they can be captured on his camera. Now, reviewing this as a film, I cannot ignore the fact that some of the diary footage is Kirkham putting his thoughts and emotions on movie instead of just having them and, frankly, this is as dull as it is egotistical and if this movie had merely been edited footage from him as he was at the begin of the movie then the movie would be almost painful to watch. Instead, the movie is painful to watch – but in a method that makes it worth seeing.You see, while Kirkham obsessively movies himself, it transpires that the film's game has dual meanings, because this movie addict is also a junkie in the normal meaning. What this means is that we receive to see Kirkham doing well in his career etc while enjoying the buzz that drugs give him. This goes on for a while with only the occasional rehab and intervention giving a clue that he isn't holding it together off the camera. As his descent starts in earnest, Kirkham's camera captures fights, depravity, self-loathing and ruin. In this regard the movie does work and is worth seeing because it is a very impacting method of telling "drugs are terrible – even if it takes years to search out". While I don't fully accept that it is a brilliant movie I can understand why some reviewers have credited this movie with supporting save the lives of their family or selves by being a stark warning because that is just what it is.It is not simple viewing because of this and nor would I expect it to be. However at the same time the movie isn't simple watching because of how it is place together. We receive too much of Kirkham feeling sorry for himself and not enough of the worst items he did. We hear about some things but given it seems like he taped everything, you have to wonder why some of his "lowest" points aren't lower. Also absent is a long period between "rock bottom" and being clean – not sure why none of this was used expect maybe there was no filming in this period.Regardless though it is ironically the work of Kirkham that makes this movie worth seeing. Credit to the editors to ripping though thousands of hours of (probably) banal personal ramblings to pick out material that shows what drugs can do to someone who would be seen as "successful". It is a tiny longer than it required to be to create the mission but it did interest me for the majority of the time.
