In My Pocket, directed by David Lisle Johnson (2011), is a film about addiction and how it can lead from just trying it out to landing at rock bottom. It’s reductive in the experience it tries to tell. Not a great film on this subject. There are plenty out there that are better to watch. What this does bring up in some way is that there needs to be more support for government mental health facilities in the United States. Overall, nothing about this film made me want to keep watching it and it brought nothing to the table of the topic of addiction. It was lacking so much. I was hoping throughout my whole viewing experience that it would get better but it never did. This film did the worst thing a film could do, make its audience feel nothing.
