"A harrowing-down-and-dirty depiction of the U.S. War on Drugs, sometimes reminiscent of Solderburgh's movie Traffic, by former dealer, California artist Langohr. Locked up for a decade on drug charges and immersed in both philosophical tomes and modern pulp thrillers, Langohr penned Roll Call. A vivid, clamorous account of the war on drugs.”
