Aro Recommended Born To Win


aka: Addict
USA 1971, 85 minutes
Dir. Ivan Passer
Rating: [M]
Genres: Classics, Suspense/Crime

Topics: Drugs & Alcohol.


Aroview: Obscure, but charmingly unique drama-comedy about a former NYC hairdresser (Segal), who has turned street hustler to finance his destructive heroin habit.

Although striking the familiar notes of 'junkie drama', this injects a surprising streak of slapstick humour to Segal's drug and romantic misadventures. Suffused with a certain irresponsible pathos, while Segal is unpredictable and compelling in the lead.
