From the dealer to the narcotics officer, the inmate to the federal judge, a penetrating look inside America's criminal justice system, revealing the profound human rights implications of U.S. drug policy.
A documentary that follows a billionaire couple as they begin construction on a mansion inspired by Versailles. During the next two years, their empire, fueled by the real estate bubble and cheap money, falters due to the economic crisis.
I am not a big documentary film watcher, but this movie is the exception to my rule. It was bold, exciting, entertaining and thought provoking. It's a subject matter that anyone can be intrigued by and I certainly was.
First of all, the pace and tempo of the movie was incredible. Second, the talent is ridiculous to watch. Seeing actors that I don't think of as speaking out about the subject matter and doing it in such a candid way was fascinating to me. But besides these two things, hearing real accounts of people that went from street dealers to drug lords is sick to both watch and hear about. It's really different from a lot of the usual stuff I've seen on TV or in movies before.
I would 100% recommend this film to anyone and I would even see it again.
