While it's satisfying to see fat cats tamed by science and an enraged public, the movie misses the opportunity to sustain the pressure.
Once it finds its footing in old-fashioned journalism, the film packs a wallop.
"Addiction Incorporated" follows tobacco's journey downhill from respectability.
Rather than relying only on archival footage and a parade of talking heads, Evans mixes it up with reenactments of episodes in the past. It's subtly unobtrusive and effective.
While its thoroughness is laudable, its pacing is deadly. And the events and attitudes depicted already have become curiously passe in less than a decade.
A straightforward, effective mix of talking heads and newsreel footage.
Charles Evans Jr., making his directorial debut, tries to liven up this old story with re-enactments. But the animated segments he inserts come off as goofy, not gripping.
Addiction, Incorporated feels more like a well-made educational documentary rather than something you'd care to see in a theater.
Anybody who's remotely interested in this topic already knows everything "Addiction Incorporated" has to say.
Much of the first half of Charles Evans Jr.'s muckraking documentary is annoyingly gimmicky...
...a film that should be shown in high schools and colleges. Victor DeNoble is a great role model with something important to say. I hope people listen.
The one anti-smoking doc to see if you're only having one.
