Review of Cocaine Cowboys

This documentary is the first of two documentaries dealing with the early days of the cocaine trade. I actually saw the Cocaine Cowboys II documentary first. That film led me to this one. The two films work together because they cover different time periods. The second film is a natural extension of the first and includes some of the same characters.

Review of Cocaine Cowboy II

The actual story of Charles’ rapid rise is an interesting one and it’s told in a compelling way. But the fact that he has never been to prison and that Griselda, who is personally responsible for hundreds of murders, is now free because of a sex scandal in the prosecutors office leaves you with the impression that justice has not been served.
