Storyline

Set in 1991 on the inner-city streets of Oakland, California, cocaine dealer Charles Cosby has his life changed forever when he writes a fan letter to the "Cocaine Godmother" Griselda Blanco, who is serving time at a nearby federal prison. Six months later, Cosby is a multi-millionaire, Blanco's lover, and the head of her $40 million a year cocaine business. Also known as "The Black Widow" for her propensity to permanently dispose of her men when she's done with them, Blanco will stop at nothing to ensure that Charles is faithful to her. Cosby soon learns that he's in way over his head. Written by Magnet Releasing edited w/ some masala

Disappointing
15 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cocaine Cowboys II was disappointing. If you watched any documentaries about the Miami cocaine wars you'll see the same tired recycled stock footage and photos. The story of Griselda Blanco is interesting. She was drug kingpin that is attributed to over 200 hundred murders. I can't fault Director Billy Corben. It's hard to tell a story that has been done to death.

Charles Crosby rode to the top of the Oakland drug trade by becoming the kept man of Griselda Blanco. He has charisma in front of the camera has he tells his story. To break up the talking head factor of this DVD cartoonish reenactments are shown as he recalls past events. It looked like something out of Sin City. I didn't like reenactments.

If you've never heard of Griselda Blanco then this DVD could be worth a rent. If you watched other documentaries on the Miami drug trade this one will be a snoozer.
