Storyline

Facing is a documentary series that tells the stories of a broad range of global iconic, and often notorious, individuals through the eyes and unique experiences of those who 'faced' them - the brave few who dared to oppose the most accomplished and often feared people who have ever lived. And who better to dive into their psyches and peel back the layers of their successes and struggles than the people who helped shaped them through conflict, confrontation, and camaraderie.

Too short to do justice
30 September 2016 | by (Kotadeniyawa, Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

Pablo Escobar was a complex phenomenon but not an especially unique one. Anyone who goes after a government using the same tactics as the government is invariably a criminal at least in terms of the State. Velupillai Prabhakharan used similar criminal activities through out the Western world to fund his own operations in Sri Lanka. Of the two it would be fair to say Escobar did more to ameliorate the trials of the poor than Prabhakaran, but both progressed through assassination and then all out war. What the documentary does not talk about is that Escobar's operation was undermined by a group who eventually became the Contras and one way or another poor Gary North paid with his life and his reputation for exposing that. Overall this documentary would serve history better by explaining the international environment in which all this occurred.
