Blow is a 2001 biopic about the American cocaine smuggler George Jung, directed by Ted Demme. David McKenna and Nick Cassavetes adapted Bruce Porter’s 1993 book Blow: How a Small Town Boy Made $100 Million with the Medellín Cocaine Cartel and Lost It All for the screenplay. It is based on the real life stories of George Jung, Pablo Escobar, Carlos Lehder Rivas (portrayed in the film as Diego Delgado), and the Medellín Cartel. The film’s title comes from a slang term for cocaine.
MY TAKE:This movie was def one of my favorites of this genre..Just one of my Faves period. I think they did a good job with this joint. It had some memorable scenes..like the house full of money..crazy..
My man life pretty much got phucked up by a bitch..excuse my french but it is what it is…then the greed and necessity took over Boston George as he tried to get money the best way he knew how. Even though he knew how much was at stake.
I think our community loves a good rags to riches story..and thats what this definitely is…although it goes back to rags in the end just like most people that live this type of life. True story..good story..watched it probably 50 times! I got the DVD and Blu Ray…You should cop it too if you dont have it.
