"Blow" - one of the few excellent crime drama, which, perhaps, trying to make the life of known drug dealers, but they do it so ingeniously, that sometimes you want to at least one minute to try yourself in the shoes of Tony Montana's, or about George Jung. Since the "Scarface" - my favorite film of this genre, "Cocaine" just could not appeal, and Johnny Depp's character here is even more sympathy than Al Pacino in 1983. Morality is the same - pursuit of the American dream in this manner in the end will not lead to anything good, no matter how much wealth and power she brought. And most interesting - these characters are all well aware, so a simple conclusion - in another they are your life and not just imagined.
First of all, in this movie interesting story - it is a gradual ascent of the young George Jung on top of the triumph of his own, he could not exist as most people around him, this whole routine and monotony are not left him the choice. Certainly, any drug trafficking - the worst, what can dedicate himself a man, even in the movies it looks so appealing and interesting. On the other hand, such a person, as Jung, deserves some respect, because going for their dreams and achieved all that I could wish for. This is already in a tragic finale, he is aware of something like that in reality he wanted from life, in addition to the wealth and respect in circles of drug traffickers.
Also, unlike the same Tony Montana, he did not go ahead, did not suffer a mental disorder and not going crazy from the mountains of cocaine. I do not know in real life this character of the film Jang performed by Johnny Depp looks like a harmless, quite a decent guy. His case, he does not Rotate through brute force and arrogance, but by cunning and respect for business partners. Of course, in this business are inevitable continuous killings. betrayal, prison, and other "joys of cocaine Life. The fact that the main character was well aware that he is doing and why he himself has repeatedly explained during the film that shows us the real firmness of his personality.
The director Ted Demme turned out no worse than the other creators of first-class crime dramas. "Cocaine" is interesting, pretty shot "dynamic", but Brian De Palma, is likely to twenty years after the "Persons with a scar, it would be an order of magnitude more powerful. But all this demonstrated by the movies The American dream seems even here is very attractive. And the film is good finale, because the more people look a version of the life drug dealer is, the more of them will be able to make their point of view. In addition to excellent Depp, Penelope Cruz remembered role and Franka Potente, cast here is excellent. Who is the composer Graeme Revell, I think, to speak not need. In general, one of the best crime dramas in film.
In my opinion - strong intelligent film, such films are very few.
