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.

"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.

It is immediately obvious that director Ted Demme was influenced by the Martin Scorsese masterpiece, "Goodfellas." There are so many scenes here that echo from that film that a less discerning eye may cry out, "Theivery!" Ray Liotta is here, as well, and is solid as Johnny Depp's forgiving father. The only major difference between the two films is that Martin Scorsese is more experiemental in his approach to filmmaking, while Ted Demme is still searching for his own, unique voice through the work of his peers. That is not to say that his work is inferior to most directors, it is excellent for the most part, but falls prey to simplicity and/or stealing from other influences. However, this is a very good film, and none of my criticism should diminish that fact. But this movie simply would not be the same without the under-appreciated presence of Johnny Depp. He has done such diverse, great work for so long in film that he has gone relatively unnoticed until "Pirates of the Carribean" made him a star, not to mention "The Sexiest Man Alive." I have been a fan of his for years, and I am never disappointed with anything he does. This is another superb performance, subtle and realistic, and what he does here is what all great actors do: they make you forget they are acting, and they become the character they portray. Johnny Depp does that in every one of his films that I've seen. This role is no exception. By the end of the film I was summarily impressed, once again.

I can't BELIEVE anyone could put down this movie! First of all,it's a TRUE story about the famous criminal George Jung who quoted something like "I saw Johnny Depp become SO MUCH like me , it was scary"! Johhny Depp did an EXCELLENT performance, he is an excellent actor, so is Ray Liotta (who plays his Dad, and Ray is only 7 and 1/2 yrs older than Johnny in real life,but this movie goes over a 25+ yr. time span)! It was refreshing to see Ray Liotta in a "Non-Violent role! lol! The first movie I saw with Penelope Cruz,and she was good.
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!
