Critic Reviews for Explicit Ills
A movie that too often feels comprised of arty public service announcements can only be considered a lost opportunity.
Despite a good cast, Explicit Ills is about as phony as it gets.
Gorgeous to look at and touchingly sincere, Mark Webber's directorial debut makes a considerable impact despite its evident flaws.
There is much to argue with, and much to regret, about a film whose director thinks he needs to drop an anvil on our heads when art would suffice.
The film's cast and the fluid camerawork are as hip as can be, and in this age of Obama, so is the sentiment -- unflinching but optimistic.
Two of the cast members shine: Lou Taylor Pucci as a drug dealer who finds a new lover and baptizes himself in substance abuse, and Rosario Dawson as a mother trying to care for her asthmatic son with no health insurance.
