Italy. Dir. Sydney Sibilia. 2014, 100 mins. With Edoardo Leo, Valeria Solarino, Valerio Aprea. One of the finest Italian comedies in years, this box office smash is a bitingly satirical look at the country’s economic crisis. Unable to find jobs in academia, a group of underemployed ex-grad students—including a molecular research scientist, an economist, and an anthropologist—hope to earn a quick buck by entering the drug racket. But when the designer drug they fashion turns out to be all the rage, success proves more than a bunch of nerdy academics can handle. This sharp comedy plays like a zippy mash-up of Breaking Bad and Reservoir Dogs.
