All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (4)

  • Despite his casual aura, the filmmaker is eloquent and thoughtful.

    Jan 21, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Even before a "do as I say, not as I do" twist costs it all credibility, "Prescription Thugs" is a not very good documentary about a very important subject.

    Jan 21, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Engaging and enraging but also, alas, consistently superficial, it's a hot-button work whose easily digested nonfiction methods will appeal to mainstream documentary audiences, even if they also leave viewers hungry for greater substance.

  • It's unusually confessional and often moving, but Bell's film is unsatisfying as a piece of documentary journalism.

    Jan 19, 2016 | Full Review…
  • An accessible look at an important topic: the medicine that ails us.

    Dec 10, 2015 | Full Review…
  • If you want to see a documentary about the director's life and how drugs affected him personally, then go see this film. If you're looking for something about what society can do to combat a problem that has turned into an epidemic, look the other way.
