Favorite Movie of the Year
21 November 2012 | by noreen-keltonSee all my reviews

When I saw a screening of How to Make Money Selling Drugs it was to a packed house...at 9am in the morning. But that is not the impressive part...when the movie ended, I, along with almost every other person in the audience, gave the movie a resounding and well- deserved standing ovation.

This film is no joke. It is not the documentary of yester-year - quite the opposite. It is a passionately entertaining, thought provoking, imaginative and impressive film that is nothing short of amazing.

Not only was the talent remarkable, the interviews advanced, but it was shot and executed in such a high level and creative way. I honestly do not have enough good things to say.
