Justin (Pucci) is a 17-year-old who still sucks his thumb. After being hypnotised by his orthodontist (Reeves) into abandoning the digit, he becomes addicted to a variety of drugs and in the process turns into another disaffected teenager. Interesting if flawed adaptation of Walter Kirn's novel by graphic artist and music video virtuoso Mills. He seems to be a filmmaker far more adept at showing emotional turmoil than adolescent joy but nevertheless this is a fine feature debut for him.
