Groovy little film detailing a day in the life of two junkie
s, Spoon (Tim Roth
) and Stretch (Tupac Shakur
), who decide to quit after their mutual friend, Cookie (Thandie Newton
s and is left comatose
in intensive care
on New Year's Eve
Unfortunately, their desire to kick the habit
is blocked at every turn by uncaring bureaucrats who refer them from department to department, ad infinitum
Of course, watching two junkies fill in forms and shiver for ninety minutes wouldn't make entertaining viewing, so there's a murder, blind veterans (complete with dog), big bad gangsters and their bigger, badder henchmen to deal with.
Oh, and did I mention that the three main protaganists are in a Jazz band? It's all good.
