User reviews on I'm Dangerous with Love
I’m Dangerous with Love is an awesome doc**entary directed by Michel Negroponte. It is about Dimitri Mugianis who was addicted to heroin and was healed after taking ibogaine. Dimitri travels around United States and helps addicts by treating them with ibogaine, which is a root of an African plant that has a power to stop addiction. Dimitri is a very interesting person, he works non stop to help the addicts until one of the sessions go wrong. I was glued to my seat through the entire movie. Honestly it was hard to watch sometimes and my girlfriend could not handle some of the parts of the film. Ibogaine has some gnarly side effects and I am not sure Dimitri should be doing what he is doing, but it seems like people are ready to take the risks and Dimitri believes in what he does. This films is totally awesome and I am recommending it to all of my friends.
I am a recovering drug addict and I was absolutely blown away by this film. I wish I have seen it before I had to go to numerous rehabs and worst detox of my life. Why did I not know anything about ibogaine before?! Maybe because it is illegal in the United States and maybe because all those rehabs and detox centers would be out of business if people knew about ibogaine. I know it is dangerous, but trust me most of the addicts would give it a try without any hesitation, because a sober life is worth it. I related to Dimitri’s story because my story is very similar and wish I saw this film earlier in my life. Still i am very happy I saw it now and I can inform people about it and maybe help someone change their lives forever. This movie is amazing and inspirational and I have such a respect for the director Michel Negroponte for being brave and making this wonderful film. Please go and see this movie and encourage others to see it. It might change your life.
I did not expect this movie to be this good. I went to see this film without really knowing anything about ibogaine and it’s effects. I can not believe that a root of a plant can heal addiction, but it seems to be true. Dimitri himself was a heroin addict and it completely healed him and changed his life. Honestly I had a hard time watching the movie during some parts, it is pretty intense and disturbing. What Dimitri does is completely illegal and very dangerous because the drug has pretty unpredictable side effects and a person can literally die from them. However, it helps people to overcome major addictions and turn their lives around. I don’t know if it is worth the risk and I think the director Michel Negroponte is not sure about that either, especially when one of the treatment sessions goes wrong and Dimitri seems to be way over his head. In the end of the movie the view of Dimitri changes when he goes to Africa. This film is extremely intense and I enjoyed every second of it. I highly recommend this movie, it will change your worldview in one way or the other.
I’m Dangerous with Love is a movie about a former drug addict Dimitri Mugianis who travels around North America and treats drug addicts with ibogaine, which helps them to overcome their addictions. Ibogaine is powerful hallucinogen derived from the root of a West African plant and it is illegal in the United States. Dimitri treats drug addicts underground and takes a lot of risks doing so because the drug has very dangerous side effects, such as violent purging, psychedelic visions, and temporary paralysis. The director Michel Negroponte does an amazing job with this movie, he also does the voice over for it and I think it was a mistake on his part. I do not think his voice is up to part and sometimes he sounds completely bored and uninterested by what he is saying. Apart from that I think it is a very well shot doc**entary. Dimitri is a very interesting individual with an amazing life story and what he does now is shocking and inspirational. This film is hard to watch sometimes but it is definitely worth seeing. I will go see it again with my boyfriend and I recommend seeing this movie because it will change your view about alternative treatments for addiction.
