AsthmaOur filthy hero Gus mutters to himself, just before stealing a white Rolls Royce. He happens upon Ruby, a stunning tattoo artist he's always had a thing for, and waves her into the convertible. The misfits escape the city and into nature, sharing a joint, wondering why things used to be so much cooler in the '70s. Asthma is a modern romance that explores addiction in a fresh and honest way. She warns him not to fall in love with her, but the higher you are the harder you fall.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Asthma"Village VoiceDecember 04, 2015
A fascinating character study.Seattle TimesNovember 26, 2015
"Asthma" loses its spark and momentum long before the halfway point - a genuine disappointment.Los Angeles TimesNovember 07, 2015
The soundtrack is fantastic and Samuel eminently watchable, but "Asthma" suffers from near-lethal doses of self-satisfied hipness.Bust MagazineOctober 05, 2016
Jake Hoffman's feature film directorial debut, Asthma, deploys almost every romantic comedy trope there is, all the while throwing in heroin to give it some street cred.MovieFreak.comAugust 18, 2016
Gus just isn't a guy I liked spending time with, watching him meander around gracelessly about as entertaining as having tiny hot needles poked into my eyes A Clockwork Orange-style.HeraldNet (Everett, WA)December 01, 2015
It must be possible to make a movie in which the hero is a trust-fund baby/heroin addict/car thief and still maintain some rooting interest in the story's outcome. Asthma is not that movie.Salt Lake City WeeklyNovember 20, 2015
Too bad the music has to stop for anyone on screen to talk.The PlaylistOctober 24, 2015
A film about ennui-filled photogenic folk who can scarcely muster enough curiosity or imagination to be interested in each other, let alone the wider world, is always going to struggle to win the interest of any viewer.Under the RadarOctober 23, 2015
Like its protagonist, the film is doomed by how small of an imprint every aspect leaves.Slant MagazineOctober 20, 2015
Asthma inevitably becomes another film about a man airing out his traumas and hitting all the requisite marks on his path to healing.
