Product Description

Depp/Cruz/Liotta/Reubens/Molla ~ Blow

Special Features

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

This movie is really great to watch. It is based on a real life story of a man who started to sell drugs at street level and made his way to a high profile drug dealers. Eventually he lost his wife, daughter and is spending rest of his time in prison and day dreaming a day his daughter would visit him in prison.

Although Blow doesn't necessarily endorse the drug trade, it does glamorize the lifestyle. It's based on the life of drug trafficker George Jung (Johnny Depp) and has a nice balance between the wild and dangerous side of the business as well as family and personal relationships. The film irks some people in that it does make a protagonist out of a career criminal who helped bring loads of cocaine into the U.S. but if you can leave that moral judgement aside, it's a thrilling and provoking film that you will likely long remember. The cast of vibrant characters just jump off the screen into your consciousness. Ray Liotta and Rachel Griffiths play George's parents. Penelope Cruz plays his wife and Emma Roberts plays their daughter.

When Blow came out in the theater, I got rather hooked on it and saw it many times. I still enjoy it on Blu-ray today. It's a bit stylized and probably exaggerated here and there but the effect translates into a fun flick, although some may take offense when reprehensible behavior is shown in a flattering light.

Special Features are generous and include interviews with the real George Jung as well as a commentary track with the director. Lots of other stuff. Rated R (USA) and 18 UK. The elements of the drug trade depicted focus more so on the seductive side rather than the nasty side. There's a bit of dark stuff but it's limited, so Blow is not that heavy hitting for the rating, in my view. Some nudity, sexuality, profanity and obviously drug use.

"Blow" is based on the true story of George Jung (Johnny Depp in one of his best roles), the loving son of a struggling businessman (Ray Liotta) who, as a child, upon seeing his family struggle to make ends meet and witnessing his mother's (Rachel Griffiths) resentment for his father because of their low income, vows to never be poor. Thus ensues Jung's descent into the world of drugs. He begins his three-decade rise and abrupt fall as a drug lord smuggling pot into the US in his early 20's during the pot-crazed 60's, which garners him an enormous amount of cash. After landing a lengthy jail sentence, he meets Diego Delgado (Jordi Mollà) in jail who introduces George to the far more profitable world of cocaine dealing. He soon shoots to the top of the game and his biggest problem becomes where to put all of his cash. It is said that if you used cocaine during the 70's and 80's, there's an 85% chance it came from Jung.
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.

his final drug bust for which he is still serving time. Johnny Depp carries this movie very well, like all movies about gangs or drugs or anything crime related, this movie starts off with everything going well and then everything starting to go downhill again, it is a true story, obviously with quite a bit of Hollywood fabrication but none the less, it inspires sympathy for the characters, I for one am someone who isn't really a very emotional person when it comes to movies, at least I don't think so, but this movie brought a tear or two to my eye, especially the ending, where Depp recited a poem written by Jung and it is the saddest thing, the special features are quite amazing, I would recommend this movie to people over 14 because it does have an R rating which is due to a lot of language, drug content, extremely brief nudity and some violence here and there. Enjoy.

I rated this movie 5 stars, until I got a load of the DVD extras. These extras actually serve to drag down the enjoyment of the movie. First, there are the "character outtakes" whatever that term is supposed to mean. These consist of various characters being interviewed about George Jung - the character, not the real person. They say poorly thought out and inarticulate things like, "This guy... he's like... this guy don't care what anybody thinks, you know?" My impression was that the actors just got in front of a camera "in character" and extemporized. The results are pretty ghastly. Also, there is the jailhouse interview that director Ted Demme makes of George Jung, the real person. This is also pretty disedifying, consisting at the end of Demme sitting next to Jung on a bench and saying similarly inarticulate and poorly thought out things, like, "Yeah, its like schoolteachers make minimum wage and there's truckdrivers making hundreds of thousands of dollars a year..." Now, I am an ex-schoolteacher and though I did not make a mint at my job I certainly did not make "minimum wage" and I worked for one of the most underfunded school districts in the country. One has the impression of being a witness to a guy blowing his mouth off on the balcony of somebody's post-college get-together. Not pretty. How Demme ever got people to trust him with millions of dollars remains a mystery: the man is simply not preposessing intellectually. Also, his world is morally vague and equivocal. He tells Jung he takes a non-judgemental stance to his crimes and then says that he himself has skeletons in the closet, its just that his are not so well known. Now, I kind of doubt that Ted Demme is himself a serious criminal who has simply evaded discovery.Read more ›
