Light and atmospheric, this is a heady drama perfumed with scenes of heroin and hashish.
- Ira Cohen
A film featuring Caroline Thomson,
Casey Deiss, and Vali Myers
in a supporting role, with
music by Geno Foreman
(”Cocaine” and ”When You
Hear Those Cuckoos Calling”)
and rare live footage of
legendary British bands.
Mere words cannot adequately describe this visual montage documenting the bohemian London drug culture of the
late sixties...as they shoot up, eat, talk. In the spirit of the era’s avant garde film movement and evoking the subversive
work of Andy Warhol, Jack Smith, Stan Brackage, and even Dennis Hopper’s Easy Rider, Dope never spares its audience
a break . . . Dope is more underground than the underground. It’s sub-underground. -- First Provincetown International Film Festival, ‘99
