Flight (2012)

I know that it says that this film is based on a true story, but how close is it to the actual events?

I mean I drink a lot and I know a lot of other people who drink alot but I have literally never heard of someone drinking raw vodka directly from a plastic bottle. I mean they put those stoppers on them to make it only trickle out so it's physically impossible isn't it? And do black people even drink raw vodka I thought that was a white/slavic person thing?

Thanks for any input.

              He repented. Even when he was about to get away with it all, he didn't have the evil inside of him to throw the memory of the dead flight attendant under the bus to get out of jail. He chose to face his addiction and get put away. A lot of addicts see getting clean as similar to going to prison. That life will become routine, boring, and too controlled.
              The happy ending is prison/sobriety. Whip thrives there and manages to make some amends for how he treated his family.
              You have movies like Requiem For A Dream that have everyone end up unable to beat their addictions, or you have films like Trainspotting where at least none gets out and has a hopeful future. I'm happy to have a movie that shows someone as far gone as Whip gets sober.

              Why would you pay someone to show you shitty movies and hang arou d other druggie losers. Its almost like they want you to fail.

              Mine was court ordered, so you don't choose to pay. I had to watch this over Zoom with a whole class of other alkies.

              >I mean they put those stoppers on them to make it only trickle out so it's physically impossible isn't it?
              You use your coke nail to pop it out. Even with it it only takes like 2-3 seconds for a mouthful anyway on the 1.75s and after that you are probably putting it down for a few minutes or more if the goal isn't immediate sleep. Never seen someone chug a whole 1.75 of cheap karkov like this movie though.

              >You use your coke nail to pop it out.
              I would just use my car keys.

              I've seen the movie, I liked it but as I said the amount of alcohol he drank seemed way exaggerated and ludicrous for a passenger plane pilot while the rest of the movie was trying to be realistic.

              I've known some pretty advanced functioning alcoholics who could drink a bottle a night and still do complex work. My own grandfather worked as a mechanic and tractorist and he drank two half liters of vodka a day, one in the morning and one at dinner.

                Yes, it's very accessible and very normalized, I know. I'm an addict. I know that no other drug is quite acceptable to have while eating your meal at a restaurant. Not even tobacco anymore. You can have some on a flight, you can buy it at the grocery store, you can even have some at lunch at many jobs. (The open bar at Microsoft in Bellevue was amazing). It's ubiquitous and romanticized.
                But I disagree that it should have been darker. It was already quite dark and reminded me a lot of myself, of my father, and other alkies I've known. It having a hopeful ending is what I prefer, since I hope for some peace for myself.

                It's memed a lot, but that "I drank the vodka" scene is powerful and important - showing that all of society was ready to turn a blind eye and let him keep destroying himself and others, and that the only way it would ever end was if he made the decision and he admitted to himself and the world that it was a problem.

                I'm 4 months sober and right now it feels absolutely impossible that I'm supposed to stay this way the rest of my entire fricking life. It just gets harder to stay away the longer you are, the temptation is ridiculous sometimes, like I'll actually walk into the fricking liquor store ready to buy before I talk myself out of it. Just want to make it to one year and see if it's any different then.

                You think that's bad? They don't ever sell single cans of table beer/near beer/non alcholic beer, you are almost always forced to buy a six pack. They also cost MORE than most full alcohol beers. Meanwhile you can get a 26oz can of high gravity lager for a buck, the store has 1000 of them and they cost $1

                Additionally, you can't buy non alcoholic beer with a SNAP/EBT benefit. You can go in every day of the month and give $6 of government money to the pepsi cola company for a fridgemate of soda, but you cant buy any zero alcohol substitute. Basically incentivizes people to continue drinking since it costs the same to the user

      The lesson of this movie is you need to play ball. If he would've lied, he would've gotten away scott free. They got him drugs and would've embezzled evidence. "The Truth Shall Set You Free", except it got him jailed.

      The real lesson of this movie is people are garbage. Denzel confessed because he had a soul. The only upside is it got him away from these wastes of human beings.

        The message is if you are a pleb, tell the truth and get fricked by the system, but do you think the Hollywood writers, actors, producers, director, etc who made this movie would tell the truth in such an instance? No, they would hire expensive lawyers and lie at every opportunity to avoid conviction. They want everyone else to be noble and honest, because that creates a nicer world for them to be immoral in.

                Then you'll recall all he had before the accident flight was a couple shots mixed into his OJ. The famous chugging webm is from much later when he's hiding from the press and stressed the frick out. As an alkie who's met dozens and dozens of other alkies in recovery at this point, it really isn't very over the top except for that one moment.
