Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

Based on Welsh drugdeal­ing iden­tity Howard Marks’ in­volv­ing bi­og­ra­phy, this screen adap­ta­tion strips out much of the ‘‘ wild­ness’’ of the ride and re­duces his life story to a se­ries of mildly colour­ful tales. It kicks off dur­ing his time study­ing at Ox­ford and con­tin­ues through to his days as a full- on crim and Bri­tain’s most wanted smug­gler and stoner. Di­rec­tor Bernard Rose al­lows things to me­an­der along and although it cap­tures some of the char­ac­ter’s charm, it doesn’t cap­ture enough.

Ex­tras: Cast and crew in­ter­views, mak­ing- of and deleted scenes. NOT VIEWED.
