Heaven Knows What

HeavenKnowsWhat 550“The best of its type since REQUIEM FOR A DREAM… gripping … extreme authenticity is seen in every scene.” –IndieWire

The latest from acclaimed sibling directors Josh and Benny Safdie blends fiction, formalism and raw documentary as it follows a young heroin addict who finds mad love in the streets of New York. Using the real-life experiences of Arielle Holmes, who plays a loosely fictionalized version of herself, the film follows her attempt to go clean of both heroin and her boyfriend, the daily, near-violent, often-comic quest to score drugs, and the moments of transcendent beauty that arise from her life on the streets. It’s an electrifying tour-de-force of realist filmmaking. (U.S., 2014, 93m, digital, Radius TWC)
