 A "straight" couple dabbles in drugs and become heroin addicts. 

The film is a dizzying mix of verite-style interviews with real L.A. heroin addicts and "dramatic" vignettes concerning the same people. In other words, we meet a junkie who speaks to us about his/her life experiences (usually non-actors), and then we see them "acting" in a scene with the other "characters". There's nothing quite like this movie.

Dusty and Sweets McGee is a plotless, episodic look at the days and nights of Los Angeles junkies circa 1971. This mournful, elegiac film is a truly unique entry in its genre, its cast of real life hopheads lending it a bittersweet tinge offset by a marvelous soundtrack of jaunty oldies. Blue Moon, Duke of Earl, The Loco-Motion...these were the songs these young people grew up listening to in happier, simpler times, and now they're the soundtrack of their rapidly disintegrating lives. There's even a perfectly selected Van Morrison tune, Into the Mystic, and a magnificent composition by the unfairly neglected Jake Holmes. The first and best film of director Floyd Mutrux's on again off again Hollywood career, Dusty and Sweets McGee is an amazing time capsule that all serious film fans should try to see.
