Amazing documentary. The previous reviews don't do it any justice. This is a true yet sad story. A Story about the corruption and incompetence of the political leadership of a nation. Our neighboring Mexico. It is indeed sad. While this show doesn't show el-Chapo on camera, the filmmakers are able to interview his mother and his close associates. One can also see him in a different light, and perhaps even understand a little how important of a role he plays to so many Mexicans. Especially in the Sinaloa region. The government has failed their people in so many ways...and here comes this drug lord, who only sells narcotics and hard drugs to other countries and never to his own people (at east they convinced themselves of this fact. So in their minds, he never does) So this kingpin offers Mexicans work, money, protection, and even hope for a better future. This is why no one betrays him. The filmmakers are definitely neutral. They don't condone nor condemn. They tell a story as they see it. They show everything as is and leaves it up to the viewer to make up their mind about the man. It's a frontline documentary for God's sake. So you know it is great.
The corruption in Mexico however has resulted in a big loss of lives at the hands of drug lords. It is incomprehensible to the point of saying that this can only happen in a failed nation. Very sad to say it: A Narco state.
