Mr. Nice


True-to-life comedy-drama about the career of Howard Marks, an elite British drug smuggler, based on his autobiography. Stars Rhys Ifans, Chloë Sevigny, David Thewlis and Crispin Glover.... More

"Howard Marks (Ifans) was a young Welshman studying at Oxford when he discovered there was something unusual about his dorm room – it had a secret passageway that led to a storage space used by one of the school's top marijuana dealers. Marks and the dealer struck up a friendship as he became an enthusiastic customer, and a few years later, when plans to bring a large cache of hashish into England via Germany went haywire, Marks stepped in to help and was introduced to a circle of big league marijuana traffickers."

  • The result is a film that's long and choppy, with little narrative momentum. And yet at times, Mr. Nice is frustratingly close to brilliant. Full Review

  • A solid, often entertaining life-of-crimer which benefits from some stylistic touches and a faithful, convincing central performance. Full Review

  • An affable throwback to those guilt-free days when hippie drug dealers radiated the glamorous aura of avant-garde heroes risking prison to spread the doctrine of liberation through cannabis. Full Review

  • A faithful, fun but flawed adaptation of a shaggy-haired, shaggydog story. Marks could have had it all, but he let his life go up in smoke instead. Why? Haven’t the foggiest. Full Review
