Narcopolis Feature Film Review

Narcopolis is a sci-fi noir starring Elliot Cowan as a homicide detective who specializes in cases involving the use of unregulated drugs. The street name for his kind of cop is a Dreg and despite the legality of recreational narcotics in this near future world, corporate greed combined with a governing authority selectively enforces what substances are simply tolerated and which ones are not. Essentially what has happened is in place organized crime distributing narcotics illegally, allowing for a decades long "war on drugs" that has failed, now the government is a silent partner in the use of drugs as controlled by a wealthy mega corporation. 

When an investigation into the death of the user threatens business and uncovers a collusion involving what would seem impossible by contemporary standards, our Dreg's life comes into danger as it conflicts with a larger and more diabolical agenda.

I did not see the hook coming in Narcopolis so I was pleasantly surprised when the film took on a whole new significance rather than the typical drugs are dangerous and sold by immoral people who only care about making money and power cliche. The cast includes Jonathan Pryce and James Callis. To keep the story focused, certain larger ramifications of what life would be like in a world where drugs are legal is left for the viewer to ponder. However Narcopolis manages to avoid certain genre cliches by keeping it's narrow focus. Do not expect things to conclude neat and tidy because the solution certainly leaves things paradoxically confusing if one tries to make sense of how things are supposed to work out from there on in.

Basically sometimes one just has to accept impossible conclusions to allow for implausible realities. Well acted and above average, Narcopolis will debut at the IFC Center in New York City and on demand on Friday, October 2, 2015.

Witness the Epic Rebirth of a Cultural Icon




Feature Documentary Chronicling the Restoration of the DeLorean Time Machine;

to Follow Abridged Version on 30th Anniversary BTTFBlu-Ray



Los Angeles, CA – 2015 marks the 30thanniversary of one of the most beloved film franchises of all time: the Back to the Futuretrilogy. In the three decades since the release of 1985’s Back to the Future, and the sequels, fans all over the world have thrilled to the time traveling exploits of Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and “Doc” Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd) as they traverse the space-time continuum in a custom-built DeLorean Time Machine. But, while the films have endured, the Time Machine itself was running out of time.  Plagued by decades of souvenir hunters, rats, and harsh weather, this cinema icon seemed destined for the junkyard.  Until a very passionate and dedicated group of people decided to re-set the calendar back to 1985.

OUTATIME: Saving the DeLorean Time Machine” chronicles the efforts of BTTF co-creator Bob Gale, Universal Studios, and the film’s dedicated fan community as they work together to bring the original Time Machine back to life. Working closely with the Time Machine Restoration Team, Executive Producer Steve Concotelli was granted exclusive behind-the-scenes access for the multi-year restoration. Joe Walser (Head of the Restoration) and his team of experts had one singular goal – restore the car with 100% accuracy. Every bolt. Every detail. Exactly like it was in the movie. 


“Restoring the Time Machine was a huge passion of mine,” states Gale. “And making a movie about the restoration was a huge passion of Steve’s.” 


Concotelli also interviewed dozens of people involved with the restoration and the BTTF franchise - including Bob Gale, John Murdy, Michael Scheffe, Michael Lantieri, Kevin Pike, Claudia Wells, Joe Walser, members of the Restoration Team, fans, and more!  “OUTATIME” will have limited theatrical engagements nationwide. Announcements regarding the DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD availability of the feature version are forthcoming.


A portion of the film will also be featured on the upcoming “Back to the Future” 30th Anniversary Blu-ray release, coming out October 20th from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. 


“We are thrilled to be included on the 30thAnniversary Blu-ray,” remarked Concotelli.  “Being an official part of the ‘Back to the Future’ legacy is a dream come true.  But the Blu-ray is just the beginning of our story.  Our feature length version will have more interviews, more detail, and will reveal more of the Time Machine’s incredible journey.”
