Dir. Ted Demme
Rating: [R16]

Aroview: ‘Cocaine biopic’ of Pablo Escobar’s American partner, George Jung (Johnny Depp), who graduated from low-level pot-dealer on the beaches of California to co-ordination of a multi-national smuggling operation.

Racing through the decades (60s-80s) in an infectious free-wheeling style that recalls BOOGIE NIGHTS, this has received praise for its detail and layered narrative; others have sniffed over the rise-and-predictable-fall of yet another 70s lowlife with a heart. Also stars NZ’s own Cliff Curtis (as Escobar!)
