I Can Quit Whenever I Want

(Smetto quando voglio)
Italy 2014. Dir: Sydney Sibilia. 100 min. DCP

“Like an Italian mash-up of Breaking Bad and Ocean’s Eleven, this smartly written comedy marks a strong feature debut for director Sydney Sibilia” (Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter). A band of underemployed academics, struggling with budget cuts and dismal prospects, enters the lucrative designer-drug trade in Salerno-born Sibilia’s crowd-pleasing caper comedy, a substantial hit at home in Italy. Heading the terrific ensemble cast is Edoardo Leo as broke neurobiologist Pietro, whose sudden brainstorm leads to the unlikely venture. Soon Pietro and his scholarly crew are living the drug-kingpin high life. DOP Vladan Radovic’s flashy, energetic visuals employ an eye-popping palette of oversaturated candy colours. “Impressively funny ... One of the most exportable Italian entertainments in recent memory” (Felperin). In Italian with English subtitles.
