Weed | Chicago Reader


This standard-issue documentary about the eighth annual Cannabis Cup competition is dominated by talking heads—uninspiring interviewees who list the pros and cons of the menus and ambiences of various hash-slinging coffeehouses in Amsterdam. Additional footage of the Hemp Fashion Expo attempts to push political buttons a little more directly by featuring speakers who say things like “Let our people grow” without a trace of humor. Bland and self-righteous, this 1996 movie, partly shot and edited by producer-writer-director Doug Wolens, may be useful as a guide for tourists who want to know the best places to go Dutch.
