The Salton Sea (2002) - Addiction Movie #1

Synopsis: Payback-seeking junkie takes on bad cops and nose-less meth dealer named Pooh Bear.

Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “Deceit, double crosses, twisted agendas: mystery runs deep in ‘The Salton Sea.’ So does talent behind this dreamlike thriller.”

What Did I Learn?: Threatening to shove somebody’s penis into a cage containing an agitated badger is a highly effective means of interrogation.

You Might Like This Movie If: You’ve wanted to see Val Kilmer suffer ever since he made Batman Forever.

Really?: If you were looking to avenge the murder of your wife, would you really turn yourself into a derelict tweaker and rat on drug dealers as part of some elaborate charade?

Rating: Well-written and beautifully filmed, The Salton Sea will keep you guessing right to the end. 8.5/10 stars.
