Looking for Shorty comes up Short in its outlook
13 December 2014 | by joebloggscitySee all my reviews

Okay with such a title of a documentary, there are tons of puns galore you can come up with on this one, but the subject matter is no laughing matter.

We have two journalists/documentary makers out to try to find the elusive Mexican drug lord El Chapo ('Shorty') who is currently the world's most notorious drugs crime lord. Going and escaping from wherever they can, our leads interview just anyone who is brave enough to talk. Quite often you will feel very disturbed by some of the replies from a selection of those interviewed.

This is a graphic and honest documentary, and the question is just what will he be like when or if the documentary do find him? That's the mystery.

It's nothing special in it making, and really we are watching our leads on a wild goose chase.

It's interesting and unsettling, worth a viewing but you'll get little out of it.
