Review: Netflix's 'Narcos' takes on the legend of Pablo Escobar

27 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Narcos," Netflix's new drama about the rise of the Colombian drug cartels, opens with a title card explaining, "Magical realism is defined as what happens when a highly detailed, realistic setting is invaded by something too strange to believe. It then adds, "There is a reason magical realism was born in Colombia." This observation — which the "Narcos" creators like enough to have a character repeat in a later episode — suggests a magical realism take on the story of Pablo Escobar and the rest of the Medellin Cartel. Instead, it's a pretty straightforward, if lengthy (the first season has 10 episodes; I've seen the first 7), take on the sordid, tragic business of Pablo and his comrades. It moves at a fast clip and is eminently watchable, even as it feels like a pretty superficial take on the subject. Created by Chris Brancato, Doug Miro, and Carlo Bernard, with the first episode directed »

Second Trailer For Netflix’s Drug Kingpin Series Narcos Amps Up The Tension

18 August 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A brand new trailer has arrived for Netflix’s next original series Narcos, exploring the activities of infamous drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. Set during the druggy excesses of the 1980s, the series delves into the exploits of the kingpin himself and the Medellin cartel, who aided him in funnelling buckets of cocaine in and out of Colombia. This latest preview provides new insight thanks to Boyd Holbrook’s voiceover as one of the DEA agents lumped with the thankless task of bringing Escobar down.

Alongside Holbrook is Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) as a fellow agent and Wagner Moura in the plum role of the gangster himself. And the blood-soaked, violence-fuelled gangster tip is played heavily here, with more than a few nods to some of the genre’s classics. What’s worthwhile noting while watching the trailer is how little public presence the series has thus far. It’s »

Carla Gugino Replaces Christina Hendricks in Showtime’s ‘Roadies’ Pilot

3 August 2015 1:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Carla Gugino will star in Showtime’s “Roadies” pilot, replacing Christina Hendricks, Variety has confirmed.

The recasting marks a major redevelopment on the pilot, as creator Cameron Crowe is in the process of rewriting the original, and the role Gugino is filling has been entirely reconceived. Insiders say that the cabler is very excited about the high-profile project, which also has J.J. Abrams attached as an exec producer.

Roadies” follows the lives of the road and tech crew of a rock band on tour. Gugino will play Shelli, the band’s tough and ingenious production manager who is the right hand to the group’s tour manager, played by Luke Wilson. Though she replaces the “Mad Men” alum, the recast is a reflection of a revamp of the character.

Crowe penned the one-hour pilot, hailing from Warner Bros. TV and Abrams’ Bad Robot banner, and will serve as director. He »

Witness The Rise Of Pablo Escobar In Trailer For Netflix’s Narcos

15 July 2015 6:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix has been having a hit-or-miss year with its originals, with runaway successes like Marvel’s Daredevil and lackluster bows like Bloodline and Sense8, but Narcos definitely has all the trappings of another hit for the streaming giant.

The first trailer for the 10-episode series paints it as a fast-paced, well-researched exploration of the rise of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar as his Medellin cartel ruled the country with an iron fist in the late 1980s. Narcos simultaneously looks inside Escobar’s empire and follows the law enforcement officials tasked with bringing him down.

Wagner Moura plays Escobar, while Boyd Holbrook and Pedro Pascal take the other two lead roles as DEA agents Steve Murphy and Javier Pena. Jose Padilha (RoboCopElite Squad) directed all 10 installments of the series, which will land on Netflix August 28.

Here’s the official synopsis for Narcos, below:

Watch: Netflix Drops Trailer for Real-Life Crime Drama "Narcos"

15 July 2015 9:47 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Back when Netflix first started producing its own original series, I wondered how many they would ultimately ever make. Now they are making so many I can hardly keep up with them all, but after watching the trailer for "Narcos" -- which debuts August 28 -- I've found one I'm definitely going to need to keep my eye on. "Narcos" centers on 1980s drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (Wagner Moura) and the famed Medellin cartel in Colombia, long considered among the most violent, ruthless and wealthy organized crime rings in the modern era. Escobar lorded over the Medellin cartel until his assassination in 1993. Based on the trailer, it seems this first season focuses in on the mid-80s, at which point Escobar and his men were trafficking tons of cocaine each day and raking in billions of dollars each year, though the feds were hot on their heels.

"Two Men In Town" Argue About Nothing

14 July 2015 12:06 AM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Rachid Bouchareb isn’t a household name, but he’s a film festival darling. With wins at Venice, Cannes, Berlin, and Chicago, not to mention a César Award to his name, Bouchareb arrives on the American scene with a valiant attempt to capture an American tale of old animosities boiling over in the melting pot of dustbowl USA. Attracting a top tier cast with Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland), nominee Harvey Kietel, winner Ellen Burstyn, and the always enjoyable Luis Guzmán, Bouchareb sets his lens on the arid sprawl of New Mexico to follow a parolee coming home to old troubles. William Garnett (Whitaker) has found Allah while serving time, following in the all-too familiar footsteps of Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, and an entire generation of young followers who converted in the ‘60s and ‘70s in search of a nation that was truly their own. »

Dispatch from the La Film Fest 2015: ‘Puerto Ricans in Paris’

17 June 2015 6:44 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A particularly hard type of film about which to write critically is the comedy of modest ambition that achieves its aim with an acceptable amount of appeal in playing, gags, plot, and outlook, but little more. One does not wish to criticize for not being more (not least as so many are so less), nor to overpraise its slight achievements, leaving one mostly in the territory of reportage, rather than critical appraisal. Which is a way of saying that such a film is Puerto Ricans in Paris, a perfectly inoffensive, oftentimes smile-raising fish-out-of-water/culture-clash comedy that does what it aims to do pretty much without fault.

The Puerto Ricans in question are Luis (Luis Guzmán) and Eddie (Edgar Garcia, like Guzmán, a regular on director Ian Edelman’s HBO series “How To Make It In America), and they play well together – Guzmán furrows his brow a lot, and Garcia is like a nice, »
