Critic Reviews for Grass

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (5)

With its accessible and slick post modern foundation, this is a documentary worth watching and discussing, not only for its thematic merits but its artful side as well.

makes a strong case, ultimately arguing for the futility of the war on drugs, particularly a drug like marijuana

Grass makes drugs a lot of fun. Er, wait a second.

The film does little to accept or understand the views it chooses not to share.

A must-see for anyone who ever has or is currently partaking of the spiritual benefits the herb has to offer.

Documentary detailing the American government's often absurdly hyperbolic campaign of misinformation about marijuana. The archival footage and clips from REEFER MADNESS and other (non-government sponsored) exploitation films are often hilarious, but if you lack a sense of righteous indignation over pot prohibition, the joke wears thin before the movie ends. With celebrity stoner Woody Harrelson narrating, it's obvious that the filmmakers aim is to preach to the potsmoking choir.
