If you miss "The Bridge"...
15 July 2016 | by (Holzlager, NY) – See all my reviews

...which had its strong as well as weak points, you might like this drama. It's not as convincingly bilingual as The Bridge was -- even in Mexico, the characters speak English an awful lot (and awfully well) with each other -- but overall this series has, in addition to an outstanding cast, the gritty, nauseating look and feel of a blood-and-guts narcodrama worthy of the reality of drugs and money, as they might almost be, north and south of the border.

I say "almost" because, considering the lead and supporting actors cast here, the face of day-to-day narcotics trafficking is made rather too pretty, well-spoken and glamorous to be believable.

Maybe in real life the glamour king and queens benefit from the business -- but those who have their sleeves rolled up and bloody hands tend not to be so cultured, well-spoken or good looking, I'm afraid. They are, mostly pura paisa or pura gentecita -- but with millions and billions of dollars.

In real life there's nothing too slick or fanciful about those narcotraficante, sicario folks at all, except maybe some of those Cali cartel guys. It's all business and nouveau-riche, lowbrow pleasure with them. One can scarcely expect TV to show them quite as really are, since it's too camp and boring. Like Arendt's 'banality of evil', only campesino style. (Though they have succeeded in that style of depiction in "Narcos".)

I'll follow this series with interest and hope they ramp the cinema verite up a bit -- they've got Mexican Narco-film-noir down pat!
