We gave it a B

A busy, brutal study in the dangerous underworld of crystal methamphetamine users and brewers. Val Kilmer seems especially refreshed as a loner slithering in and out of identities—junkie, snitch, husband avenging the death of his wife. The cast of coolios in this atmosphere-saturated drama include Anthony LaPaglia, Boys Don’t Cry‘s Peter Sarsgaard, and Vincent D’Onofrio as a monstrous, noseless meth boss who practically dares viewers to watch him.
