Stinking Heaven2015

  • 3.4
Married couple Jim and Lucy run a commune for sober living out of their suburban New Jersey home. The motley members eat, bathe and work together selling homemade "health tea" out of their van. Although there's constant bickering and plenty of fires to be put out, Jim and Lucy have managed to establish a haven for these outcasts. But the harmony is interrupted when Ann, a recovering addict and the ex-lover of one housemate, arrives. Ann's insidious presence sends the members spiraling out of control, resulting in paranoia, drug relapse and eventually death.

Nathan Silver's experimental film offers several interesting performances and more than a little interest.

Shot using a beta video camera, this film drops the viewer into a strange communal home for recovering drug addicts. It is a grim and often disorienting visit. It's a visit that would have benefited from a bit more work in solidifying the film's script. I'm not sorry I stepped into this odd world, but I'm also not particularly glad. Of course this may be the film's point.

Sad story about addiction and recovery and how hard it is to overcome such issues. Lots of dysfunctional people in this film, actually not much different than ourselves. I recommend it.
