Netflix's Narcos Tries to Be The Wire for Colombia’s Drug War
Interesting
Category: Analysis
Tagged: Narcos: Season 1
Narcos, Netflix's new drug-war docudrama, is nearly as ambitious as its central character, Pablo Escobar. Over the course of 10 dense, sprawling episodes, the series tells the 20-year history of the narcotrafficker's rise and fall in relation to Colombia's blood-soaked history and the U.S.'s escalating drug war, from Richard Nixon through George H.W. Bush. If that sounds a bit dry, that's because Narcos can be, too. But don't forget, The Wire made a whole lot of us improbably care about the intricacies of Baltimore's municipal jurisprudence by showing us the human cost of bad policy.

Why I Love Shia LaBeouf

Tagged: Shia Labeouf
I'm not ashamed to say that Shia LaBeouf is one of my favourite actors. For me, he has everything that an actor needs to be… sorry what was that? He wore a bag on his head? He occasionally flies off the handle and does strange things? Well, more than occasionally. Every time he has a film come out in fact. That might be true, but that just so happens to lead into my first point…
