A brutal slice of life of an unknown world
18 October 2015 | by hddu10-819-37458See all my reviews

While there have certainly been many films created over the last 3 decades dealing with the drug-smuggling trade, nothing comes close to this film in showing a day in the life of a "foot soldier". All too often, we see the almost glorified portrayals of the dealers (Scarface, Blow etc) becoming super-rich overnight. Yet this film gives us the point of view from one of the hundreds of thousands of small-time workers that comprise the drug-empires of today. It would be easy to demonize anyone working in the drug-trade, but this film takes the viewer into the motivations, mind-set and environments which entice or force everyday struggling people into this world. With incredible scenery, cultural symbolism and harsh reality throughout, "Manos Sucias" is most likely one of the best films I have seen that gives relevance and insight into how the drug-world operates and the impact it has on the people involved.
