Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The film's stacked stories naggingly lack a cohesive train of thought beyond the often harmful pervasiveness of pharmaceuticals in American society.
Fresh: Palmieri and Mosher have taken on a huge and urgent topic, and their work's impact rests on their refusal to tell viewers how to feel.
Fresh: Conversation-starting doc may cause you to scrutinize your medicine cabinet.
Rotten: Despite some artful visuals and harrowing testimony, this 2012 advocacy documentary suffers from a lack of focus.
this movie was amazing!! Really good soundtrack and a heartwarming story, and it was a real eye opener to pharmaceutical companies and their personal interests. must watch.
There are several docs out there about this subject that are WAY better. Don't waste your time on this one.
I only watched the entire movie so I could say how completely unwatchable it was!! Rather than create a complex commentary on the state of poly-pharma and the philosophy of a drug taking culture, the filmmakers chose the easy way out and focused on individual narratives that were completely disjointed.
We could debate the efficacy of drugs and the moral and ethical questions that psychotropic drugs incur, but that would create a dialogue with two sides, rather than the one-sided liberal slant that these filmmakers were going for.
