Critic Reviews of "Dope"Chicago ReaderJune 25, 2015
The movie is overly ambitious but never dull, and the ensemble cast is fun to watch.ReelViewsJune 19, 2015
The film's ability to confound expectations while delivering some big laughs may be its most crowd-pleasing characteristic but the anti-stereotype message rings clear as a bell throughout.SlateJune 19, 2015
Dope's biggest strength lies in its affectionate and honest portrait of a different kind of young urban blackness than we're used to seeing on movie screens.RogerEbert.comJune 19, 2015
The film feels off-kilter more often than not, though it isn't without its inspired, successful moments.Globe and MailJune 19, 2015
Even as Famuyiwa acknowledges the preconceptions that Malcolm's blackness engenders, he invites audiences to identify with the character on the basis of his relatable interests, aspirations and vulnerabilities.Detroit NewsJune 19, 2015
When so many black movie characters are simple stereotypes, it's a pleasure to see a film with real wit about the benefits and pitfalls of playing to and against those expectations.Shadow and ActApril 12, 2017
What I love most about Dope is director Famuyiwa's confidence in his audience.Washington Free BeaconJuly 14, 2016
Moore is fantastic as Malcolm, bringing just the right kind of dorky fidgetiness to the role.Baltimore MagazineJune 10, 2016
It's kind of facile and kind of corny, but I don't know... kind of important, too.Caimán Cuadernos de CineJune 02, 2016
Shot lightly and edited to the rhythm of rap music, Dope is a really fun movie that works despite the unnecessary moral message. [Full review in Spanish]CinemixtapeApril 09, 2016
A shooting star of a film that comes dangerously close to succumbing its own scatterbrained screenplay.
