Danny Baldwin’s review:
Speaking in a voice to which they can connect, Oliver Stone conveys the heavy price of the youth of America getting high under the umbrella of the ongoing War on Drugs. Perhaps it's a bit too pro-pot and some of the symbols are over-the-top (Kitch's Afghanistan background), but sometimes these messy, passionate diatribes are able to capture the zeitgeist far better than more measured, even-keel ones. This is a savage of a movie -- and I mean that in the best possible way.
