“Methland: The Death and Life of an American Small Town” by Nick Reding is a closer look at the rise of illicit methamphetamine use that grew along socio-economic fault-lines propagated by the rise of financial capitalism and deregulation beginning in the late 1970’s.  Now 30 years later, there is no end in sight for the worlds most addictive home-grown drug that continues to ensnare millions of lives and render our closely held ideal of “small town life” an empty myth.  So go small towns all across America into the darkness – where politicians cater to corporate behemoths who they fear as too big to fail or just as likely to offshore to lower wage economies.  An eye-opening and heartbreaking documentary of how an addictive drug can highlight the socio-economic and political failures of a society.
