Chronic Town

ORIGINAL TITLE:
Chronic Town
USA / 2008 / 96 min
DIRECTOR:
Tom Hines
You don't have to be an alcoholic to get drunk every day. There are plenty of other good reasons.

Truman lives in Alaska. He keeps warm by consuming copious amounts of booze, pot and other homeopathic products. During daytime, he often drives a cab, though seldom while sober. After his girlfriend dumps him, he does what any reasonable modern man would do: He gets horribly twisted on acid and vodka and tries to kill himself. Moving through mental institutions, retirement homes and on to the outskirts of his own society, he shows us another take on Born in the USA.
