America's opioid crisis isn't a piece of tragic happenstance. It's a crime; specifically, it's a crime borne of capitalism.
That is the foundation of the filmThe Crime of the Centuryby Alex Gibney, a searing indictment of Big Pharma and the politics that have enabled over-production, reckless distribution, and the subsequent mass abuse of synthetic opiates. The film explores the origins, extent, and fallout of what many consider to be one of the most devastating public health tragedies of our time.
