The critical consensus

It's a bleak watch, this bulletin from the "war" on drugs, not least because it doesn't look like ending any time soon.

****(*)Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 22/11/2012

This urgent and formidably smart movie — perhaps the year’s most important political documentary — has opened minds and changed laws already.

*****Tim Robey, The Telegraph, 22/11/2012

A superb, insight-heavy critique of America's war on narcs, that picks up where Traffic left off with a coherent argument against currently policy. A must-see.

*****David Parkinson, Empire Online, 22/11/2012

An angry and personal attack on America's war on drugs contends it is a grotesquely wasteful public-works scheme.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 22/11/2012

Kinda all over the place, but always absorbing.

David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 22/11/2012

Angry and illuminating documentary about America's war on drugs.

****(*)Miles Fielder, The List, 17/12/2012
