Um grito na vida: Warren Sonbert
Amphetamine features young men, curiously clean-cut by the drug-culture standards of only a few years later, shooting speed and making out for the camera. The opening scenes are a direct documentation of Sonbert’s male friends shooting up. With the onset of the speed rush, the images become blurred, vertically elongated, evocative of the aggressive change in consciousness. Then the film suddenly takes flight with an exuberant image of two young men kissing passionately, Sonbert’s handheld camera traveling around them in an ecstatic circle.
