A documentary on how the citizens of Washington State legalized recreational marijuana, and an examination of the effect of this citizen initiative on the state and our nation—the first wave of a revolutionary sea change in American drug policy. Tracking the behind-the-scenes efforts of both the pro- and anti-initiative groups, the film serves as a case study for other states in determining how to reform their own drug policies, and examines the civic, economic and human impact of marijuana legalization.

Per Theater Chart: Jumping over the Competition

June 18th, 2014

The Rover was wedged between the two wide releases with an average of $13,860 in five theaters. Next up was How to Train Your Dragon 2 with an average of $11,627. This is good, but lower than expected. More...

Limited Releases: Signaling Defeat

June 13th, 2014

The Signal poster

Just a quick look at the list of limited releases coming out this week you will find more than a few that are earning great reviews. However, you will also find more than a few that are earning more negative reviews than positive ones. Of the ones earning fantastic reviews, most don't have a lot of buzz. I'm not sure any will be a breakout hit. Both The Amazing Catfish and Burning Bush are earning perfect reviews, so hopefully they will at least do relatively well. More...
