The War on the War on Drugs
Shot with a team of nonprofessional actors, Cevin Soling's frenzied collection of comedic "bits" makes a joke out of the "War on Drugs." The politically incorrect lineup of off-the-wall skits includes "Dr. Science" (a children's television show that teaches kids how to make LSD), "Satan's Stepchildren" (a compilation of black-and-white movie clips with overdubbed dialogue) and "Frogman Versus Welder" (a parody of European art films).
Rotten Tomatoes Score: 22%

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The War on the War on Drugs is a lively and well-executed satire that sweetens its occasional truths with rebellious humor."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Like so much drug-related humor, it's best suited for viewers who happen to be really, really wasted."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"The film becomes repetitive and dull."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"Generally witless ode to illegal substances."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Ineptitude is so thorough here that War on . . . could only make sense as a sinister governmental smear campaign to justify the war on drugs and total sobriety."
‑ Peter L'Official, Village Voice
"Drugs can be a catalyst to all kinds of creativity... and they can hamper it, too. Unfortunately, that seems to be the case here."
‑ Doug Brunell, Film Threat
"The War on the War on Drugs strings together 60 amateurish short films to tell us drugs are cool, man."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"This sly guerilla documentary takes pot shots, pun intended, at both the absurdities and victim injustices inherent in the US government's longstanding campaign against lighting up."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
"Like so much dope humor, Soling's logic is fuzzy, and you'd have to be pretty high to find any of it funny."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
