"You wanna khow to make money selling drugs?" 50 Cent asks at the outset of How to Make Money Selling Drugs. Even if you don't, the fact you've sat down to watch the film implies a "yes." Fifty's got you there. But supposing that "yes" is sincere and enthusiastic, this faux-edgy documentary produced by Entourage star Adrian Grenier isn't the comprehensive guide to running the block its title purports. Curtis Jackson is quickly scuttled aside to make way for a cast of commentators—small-time dealers, adjudicated former kingpins, cops, lawyers, Susan Sarandon—who pontificate on the cat-and-mouse of the drug trade as we're guided, rung-by-rung, from street-level marijuana dealers up to murderous South American narco-lords. But we've heard that before—a season or two of The Wire will get you the same message, and probably better pointers for launching your own drug cartel. Screening at 7 pm on Fri June 28 followed by a Q&A with Shelley Fox-Loken of LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition).
