Broken Vessels Movie Review

It's Trainspotting by way of Bringing Out the Dead, a cautionary tale of ambulance drivers boiling over in all kinds of drugs. But don't get too excited, because not much of Broken Vessels is very interesting, as co-stars Field and London act like they really are stoned throughout the entire production. See also Permanent Midnight for an example of why this does not a good film make. Plot is nonexistant, and character development is limited to an aborted romantic entanglement. Field mostly sits and stares... which is pretty much what I did while watching this thing.
