MR NICE ( MA)
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.
