cin·aes·the·tic's rating of the film Clean

Drugs are bad, mmm-kay? This film was worse than drugs. It gets two stars because of Nick Nolte. In fact, watch "The Good Thief" instead for a better cinematic treatment of the drug-addled struggle. Also, the choice of Brian Eno's "An Ending (Ascent)" as the leitmotif music is particularly galling to me, as it was used 4 years prior for the closing titles of "Traffic", Soderbergh's 2000 film about the drug trade.
