Movie Info

This documentary follows director Kevin Booth as he investigates the world of illegal drugs, from street-corner dealers to high level kingpins, from narcotics officers to powerful judges. Appraoching his subject matter with a skeptical eye, Booth questions the effectiveness of the drug war, and the motives of those who continue to fuel it from all ends. Through research and investigation, Booth asserts that there might well be just as much greed, crime, and corruption on either side of the narcotics battle, as the drug war is steeped in issues of race and class.

Audience Reviews for American Drug War: The Last White Hope

Very interesting, informative, and surprisingly amusing documentary about America's unsuccessful "war on drugs." What made it particularly enjoyable was the charismatic subjects that were interviewed to make this film possible.

American Drug War is a new documentary by Kevin Booth (longtime friend of Bill Hicks and founder of Sacred Cow Productions) focusing on the "war on drugs" in the U.S., started by Richard Nixon and continued on by each subsequent president, which costs billions of dollars to taxpayers and has been proven to be extremely unsuccessful. Booth delves into every aspect of the drug war, covering its inception and history, its current status, theories surrounding it - leaving no stone unturned. It features a variety of fascinating interviews on both sides of the "war" zone. This documentary is comparable in quality and nature to The Corporation, in that it completely covers this one topic so well that I definitely consider this the essential documentary on the American drug war. This film is an eye opener and (like The Corporation) it should be seen by everyone, especially Americans.
