"It'll get better. It'll all work out...except it won't."

A movie hasn't hit me on such a personal level in a very long time. This isn't just a movie about a struggling heroin addict but someone struggling with depression and self worth. No matter who he reaches out to and no matter what opportunities come his way, Anders is unable to outrun his past and can't forge past the darkness that consumes him. This movie struck a chord with me in that I sometimes fear, I will not be able to outrun my past as well. At the same time this movie motivated me even more to not let that happen.
