Broken Vessels

1999 R

Fresh-faced paramedic Tom (Jason London) learns the ropes from his unflappable veteran partner, Jimmy (Todd Field), but soon discovers that rampant drug use and loveless sex are responsible for Jimmy's cool façade. Worse, Tom realizes he may be following the same path. Director Scott Ziehl's gritty movie -- featuring documentary-style camera work by Antonio Calvache -- took top honors at the 1998 Los Angeles Independent Film Festival.
