Back in August, Madison Film Forum‘s Edwanike Harbour reviewed Bennie and Josh Safdie’s drama, Heaven Knows What, leading up to its VOD and DVD/BD releases in September. The film finally makes it to a big screen in Madison tonight at 7:00 at the UW Cinematheque.
Back in August, Edwanike wrote:
This is one of the more honest and raw portrayals of drug addiction in a long time. . .The use of nonprofessional actors adds to the cinema vérité feel of the piece. [Arielle] Holmes is a revelation and hopefully we will see more from her. With Heaven Knows What the Safdie’s have successfully added to their list of sleeper indie hits.
