Fresh: Palmieri and Mosher have taken on a huge and urgent topic, and their work's impact rests on their refusal to tell viewers how to feel. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Aug 7, 2013

Fresh: Conversation-starting doc may cause you to scrutinize your medicine cabinet. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Aug 7, 2013

this movie was amazing!! Really good soundtrack and a heartwarming story, and it was a real eye opener to pharmaceutical companies and their personal interests. must watch.

Idiot Documentary

There are several docs out there about this subject that are WAY better. Don't waste your time on this one.


I only watched the entire movie so I could say how completely unwatchable it was!! Rather than create a complex commentary on the state of poly-pharma and the philosophy of a drug taking culture, the filmmakers chose the easy way out and focused on individual narratives that were completely disjointed.

We could debate the efficacy of drugs and the moral and ethical questions that psychotropic drugs incur, but that would create a dialogue with two sides, rather than the one-sided liberal slant that these filmmakers were going for.
