American Meth, Justin Hunt’s blunt look at methamphetamine use in the American heartland, is pretty brutal, but then so is meth, the “devil’s serum,” as one interviewee calls it. It is a killer drug, worse than heroin, worse than crack, based on what I’ve seen in real life and what you’ll see in this film.

Hunt interviews users, law enforcement officials and anti-meth advocates–including the founders of Faces of Meth and the Montana Meth Project.
