Depp/Cruz/Liotta/Reubens/Molla ~ Blow
The third Infinifilm finds another rich topic to showcase the fully loaded DVD line. Foremost is director Ted Demme's captivating interview with the real George Jung (the director also shares his commentary track with his subject). In addition Demme gives us a flippant, behind-the-scenes "Production Diary" and more than a half-hour of better-than-average deleted scenes (a few of which reveal the fate of a major character). The extemporaneous "Character Outtakes" are so good, more filmmakers should give it a try. One well-researched documentary segment traces the intertwined history of Colombia and cocaine; another relates the scientific explanation of getting high. With the Infinifilm feature, a viewer can access these materials separately or during the movie with seamless "jumps" to selected extras. A DVD-ROM feature incorporating the movie and printed script is an excellent finishing touch. --Doug Thomas

Over the years he struggles with a crack-addicted wife (Penélope Cruz as you've never seen her before), the relationship with his young daughter, and maintaining his relationship with the only person who truly cares for him in the world, his father. Additionally, Jung is portrayed in a sympathetic light as a nice guy who just makes some bad decisions. Usually I disagree with this type of "glamorization" of criminals, but I feel that in Jung's case it is truly deserved.
"Blow" is not only the fascinating, pulse-pounding, and historically informative chronicle of the rise and fall of one of America's most influential drug lords; it also the exploration of some very deep personal connections, such as very deep father/son connection between George and his father.Read more ›
I DO NOT see this movie as GLORIFYING crime! Neither do my friends, we see the TRUTH in this, that CRIME DOESN'T PAY! George could have changed, but he was obsessed with living on the edge. This movie is a GREAT influence for those FOOLS out there who are selling drugs thinking "I'm careful, it will never happen to me". OR "I won't get cought, because I don't use drugs, I'm careful, I just sell them"(remember Ray Liotta in GOODFELLOWS getting busted for coke? I recommend that movie also,good mafia movie,lots of famous stars & funny). This movie also teaches you, that when it comes to the people you THINK are your friends, who also sell drugs, are NOT really your friends! (no, I never sold them! you'll see in the movie what I mean). Everyone drug dealer is out to save their own self from jail! This movie is worth watching way more than once. You'll see how George lost MORE than his freedom, mansion,wife, and fancy cars, in the end of the movie. Theres good classic rock music in this movie too, plenty of action and suspence!!! Worth Buying!

Johnny Depp made this film; without him, it would have been a mostly predictable drug smuggling storyPublished 17 months ago by Sandra
