This true story, Blow, shows the
life of George Jung, played by Johnny Depp, who started out selling
marijuana then changed to cocaine and became the first and biggest
dealer in the U. S.
This movie is filled with dry humor, classic
rock and roll, and flashy film techniques with different styles
for each decade.
Even the clothes were just great; they
always looked a bit out of of date.
I found it very entertaining, even though
our hero crashed and burned.
Based on a true story, Blow is the
tale of a real-life drug dealer, with Johnny Depp in the lead.
The movie is made up by many great performances by a brilliant
supporting cast .
On the surface, Blow may seem to
be the ins and outs of the California cocaine trade, but in reality
it is the roller-coaster life of George Jung and his inability
to resolve conflicts with family, friends, and money.
Johnny Depp wears overblown good and bad
long-haired wigs and is fascinating to watch in the lead role
of the movie Blow.
He plays real-life drug smuggler george
Jung, who made and lost one hundred million at his illicit trade
in the 70s.
The story covers, 20 years of territory,
an execution, betrayals, laundered money, border crossings, and
illegal flights in planes.
The film fails to make it clear why George
Jung became such a huge success as a cocaine kingpin, but maybe
this will be answered when he is released from federal prison
in the future.
