To offset all of the fake 10/10 reviews, I offer an honest review, without any spoilers.
The portrayal of addiction throughout the movie is neither accurate nor complete. It falls quite short in an attempt to make the mother care more for her child than her addiction. The portrayal of the homelessness crisis also falls short, not offering a complete look.
Had the story and characters been better developed and fleshed out, the movie might have been compelling.
The frantic camera action, jerking and bobbing, while meant to reflect the characters angst, is just annoying.
Kudos to the lighting direction. Too many movies are shot in the dark (aka the entire last season of GOT). While this had many dark scenes underground, the lighting was done quite strategically, offering enough contrast to follow the scene.
