Heaven Knows What (2015)

802341_040
Every two weeks or so I check out the movie database Rotten Tomatoes which lists amongst other things – latest release DVDs and the movie info of this one caught my eye.

HEAVEN KNOWS WHAT blends fiction, formalism and raw documentary as it follows a young heroin addict (Arielle Holmes) who finds mad love in the streets of New York.’ – Rotten Tomatoes

Truly didn’t expect anything out of this, which is why it was such a huge surprise.  Its near-flawless as far as documentary-style films go. Heaven Knows What is relatively aimless which might turn many people off, but thats what I adored about it. Raw, real and totally honest. The performances here are compelling. Probably the best movie I have seen which depicts homelessness since Mike Leigh’s Naked.
