Synopsis >

Meet Tip, Pam, Larry, Kit, Dusty, Sweets McGee and nameless, aimless more with young faces and old eyes. Meet them, but don't get too attached. Because tomorrow some of them may not be alive. Most of the people who appear in his astonishing semidocumentary about the daily life of Los Angeles heroin abusers are real-life addicts, caught up in an endless cycle of stealing, hustling, jail time, shooting up, and coming down - hard. Directed by Floyd Mutrux (American Hot Wax), with graphic cinematography by William A. Fraker (Bullitt), Dusty and Sweets McGee is a film in its own category. There are long stretches during which it's hard to take your eyes off the screen (Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle).
