Plot Summary

In the turbulence of the 1970s, the international drug trade underwent a fast, violent and lucrative revolution - and one ordinary American was at its center. But in just a few short years, George Jung (Johnny Depp), a high-school football star single handedly became the world's premiere importer of cocaine from Colombia's Medellin cartel, changing the course of an entire generation. "Blow" is a high-velocity look at George Jung's spectacular rise and fall.

    A textbook case of a film that's befuddled by its subject.

    Rarely since the tale of the Corleones has a movie presented such a compelling, sympathetic portrait of a criminal lowlife.
