'A Thousand Junkies' Review

'A Thousand Junkies' Review | Hollywood Reporter: "Three drug addicts desperately search for a fix in Tommy Swerdlow's black comedy.

It’s not surprising that Tommy Swerdlow’s directorial debut about three heroin addicts in desperate search of a fix reeks with authenticity. The film’s director/co-writer was an addict himself for nearly two decades, suffering open-heart surgery and a near-fatal bleeding ulcer as a result. Known for his screenplays for such family-oriented comedies as Cool Runnings and Snow Dogs, Swerdlow has now turned his experiences into A Thousand Junkies, a film geared to a decidedly different demographic. It recently made its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.
