Sundance Film Review: ‘Dope’

24 January 2015 11:24 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sure to be one of the buzzier commercial prospects coming out of Sundance this year, “Dope” is a buoyant teenage caper that has at least as much in common with John Hughes-style high-school comedies as it does with most ‘hood narratives involving drugs, gangs and crime. That mix risks silliness at times, but there’s so much playful energy and wit to Rick Famuyiwa’s indie-est project since “The Wood” (1999) that few viewers will mind. A soundtrack featuring new songs by Pharrell Williams will be a big plus in promoting a film that might conceivably fall between arthouse and mainstream camps theatrically, but should play well to any wider audiences it reaches.

21 January 2015 12:55 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Revenge of the Nerds meets Boyz N the Hood in the first trailer for Dope. This comedic hood thriller mash-up is set to make it's World Premiere in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Giving it a leg above the competition are appearances by rapper A$AP Rocky and Workaholics star Blake Anderson.

In Dope, Malcolm is an anomaly, a "geek living in the Bottoms," the drug-infested, gang-run ghetto part of Inglewood. A victim of circumstance, but with admirable ambition, Malcolm gets caught in the crossfires of a drug buy gone bad. Using his wits and considerable smarts, he manages to take a dicey situation and make it work in his favor.

Dope features an amazing ensemble of stars including Shameik Moore (Cartoon Network's Incredible Crew), Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel), Kiersey Clemons (Amazon's Transparent, MTV's Eye Candy), Kimberly Elise (VH1's Hit the Floor, »
