Storyline

The true-life story of a Harlem's notorious Nicky Barnes, a junkie turned multimillionaire drug-lord, MR. UNTOUCHABLE takes its audience deep inside the heroin industry of the 1970s. The most powerful black drug kingpin in New York City history, Barnes came from humble beginnings to make himself and his comrades rich beyond their wildest dreams, ultimately reaching national infamy in 1977 when the New York Times put him on the front cover of their magazine with the headline "Mr. Untouchable". Soon after, it all came crumbling down, and facing a life sentence without parole, Barnes started naming names. With the first hand testimony from "the black Godfather" himself, this documentary tells an epic story of business, excess, greed and revenge. Written by Magnolia Films

Great portrayal of a real life story
3 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was very well done. I enjoyed not only the story line, characters and authenticity, but the cinematography was fantastic! If you're looking for a movie experience that will leave you thinking, this is the one.

The real life story of drug lord Nicky Barnes is fascinating and truly an eye opener. It takes a look into the city of New York in the 70's from a criminal view point.

The acting in this film was top notch & very believable. Great work from many "unknowns". I would recommend this film to all types of movie lovers.
