title The Agony of Jimmy Quinlan
description Homeless alcoholic "derelicts" featured in this documentary from 1970s Montreal. Life seems a big party with free food and lodging and much film imagery of men drinking booze straight from bottles, but Jimmy is "tired of being sick and tired" and tries to quit. Social attitudes have changed over time as the science of addiction, social services and harm reduction make some headway, but the religious missions and bleak outlook remain the same with more people on the street than ever. [Film includes brief unsexy nudity, NSFW.]
producer Janice Brown, for the National Film Board of Canada (NFB)
featuring Jimmy Quinlan
