MR. NICE
2010, MPI Media Group, 121 min, UK/Spain, Dir: Bernard Rose

Inspired by Howard Marks’ popular autobiography, this sprawling cannabis tale recounts the Welshman’s rise to the top of the drug-smuggling world of the 1960s and 1970s, and his later reinvention as a marijuana evangelist. Rhys Ifans and Chloë Sevigny play Marks and his wife, Judy, with able support from Crispin Glover, David Thewlis and Ken Russell (yep, the famous director) as well as a fine Philip Glass score.
