(kr) wrote: An all over the place mixed bag. Comprehensively fails to capture the spirit of the book, with some bizarre anti-drugs scenes thrown in to boot.Not actually rubbish, & its biggest failing may have been to attempt to adapt the story to a film in the first place. You probably have to get caught up in the length & detail of the book to understand how utterly consuming the lifestyle he led was, & a film is just too short to portray that.In the book, Howard Marks rises above both stoner culture & violence. At the same time the war on drugs, as so often elsewhere, is revealed like the emperor's new clothes. Sadly, not so the film, which is more of a light hearted romp aimed at the middle ground, with a traditional moral warning thrown in.Those who haven't read the book will find the film forgettable, & those who have will be reminded how good it was, & be a bit disappointed with the film.

(ag) wrote: it's a dramatically moving movie. as im interested in worldwide movies this is a good sample to vietnamese movies. beside being realistical and positive, adding a "being safe" feeling against/across world and people, now this security feeling, i must say, matchless. being runaway from home and no any visible "living sources", staying alive and doing it well is something all pathetic & apathetic minds should know!!!!!!!!! ^o^
