"MDMA"... doesn't fully communicate the context of Angie's experience priors to the film, keeping us removed from the character and the movie as a whole.
Although MDMA goes to some dark places and features its share of ugly scenes, it's ultimately a story of hope and redemption.
MDMA is all excess: giant hair, stacks of silver bangles, dramatic flashbacks, and lots of shouting
It's Wang's eye for social realities, brought to life by her cast, that gives her film its edge.
First-time feature filmmaker Angie Wang blended her own experience in the illicit drug industry with fiction, crafting a story that lies somewhere in between.
The redemption arc plays out with minimal subtlety or surprise, leaving the film's amusing period details as the only saving grace.
[Wang's] screenplay is a roiling yet random stew of melodramatic elements all too calculated to wring the most extreme emotional reaction from the viewer.
Earnest, but awkwardly written and produced, "MDMA" is an R-rated after-school special with its heart in the right place.
Wang doesn't attempt to garner any undeserved sympathy for her younger self or over-explain her erratic behavior. She simply lays out the facts (as best she can relay them) and affords the viewer the ability to pass judgment.
There are a lot of excuses made by and for the main character of MDMA.
Lurid, uneven exploitation masquerading as a cautionary tale about "Molly."
Set during the eighties, Cardinal X perfectly encapsulates the punk era through a combination of music, fashion and attitude.
