  • ★★★★ review by Tyler Scruggs on Letterboxd

    Very good documentary that forced me to cover my eyes and ears no less than three times.

  • ★★★★ review by funkshoi on Letterboxd

    The most hopeless thing I’ve ever seen since The Road.

  • ★★★½ review by Dov Doviak on Letterboxd

    I sneaky powerful documentary on how drug trafficking effects people living in rural Arkansas. The Cops=esque elements of the police side of things feel a bit out of place at times and take away from the rest of the film's message, but overall, Meth Storm is a great film centered primarily around the brutally honest struggles and tragedy one family suffers.

    Sometimes, a documentary can shine simply based on its level of access. METH STORM: ARKANSAS USA is such a film, following a family in Arkansas for a few years as they deal with meth addiction and criminal consequences. This type of access doesn't happen by accident; the Renaud brothers have clearly cultivated a strong relationship with this family to be allowed to film the things that appear in this film.

    This documentary showcases a problem and doesn't have any solutions, but that's okay; in this case, the film is focused on highlighting the humanity of the people involved in the problem, and does so expertly.
