An exhausting uneven masterpiece

An otherwise flimsy, and borderline incoherent narrative is buttressed by great visuals and devastatingly mournful narrations from the documentarian. This film's predecessor is the best drug film ever made, I say this as someone who was addicted to heroin for a decade, has a masters in counseling psychology with a focus on substance abuse, and a bachelors of arts in film. The first film's strongest strengths are its characters, the setting, and the raw authenticity of the drug use. Its sort of a lightning caught in a bottle scenario.

This film doesn't really have any interesting characters, theres actually more drug use and sex than in the original.

This film lacks the humanity of the first one. There was an odd boisterous, almost bubbly element to Jani's personality. He was an optimist. The most heartbreaking part of that film is when Jani talks about his dream to just live on a farm with a wife and kids. This sequel has none of that.

Still I'd recommend it, its wild and surreal, and absolutely filthy.

Seriously this is one of the grimiest films I've ever seen, like almost troma quality but its all real.

I would have liked a more thorough dissection of what led Jani to hang himself.

Controversial

If you despise drugs and the not so fancy side of the world and life, it's not for you.

It's a good Finnish documentary about the less fortunate, shot by the less fortunate, about junkies, their lifestyle and their friend trying to figure out what have happened to his friends who he left in bankok. It is a good window to life you might not have a clue about, but keep in mind, its not glorious in any way. Also there is slight artistic side i'd say, and i liked it. I have have watched the Reindeerspotting (the first part), but i dont remember much about it, gotta watch it again, still recommend it too.

Gives a lot to think about.

Immersive and dark

This film kept me on my toes and eyes peeled at the screen, reminding that the world is not a perfect place and things may take a turn from bad to worse in a short period of time. Great narration and creative shooting had me at hello as Cetinkaya and Neuvonen truly succeed in their aspiration to showcase repercussions of the netherworld.
