  • The Two Escobars

    The first 30 for 30 movie I have watched, and after seeing this I may need to check out some more.

    The first 40 minutes of this documentary was about as well-done as possible. They really put over how tragic the state of Columbia was with the high murder rate and drug money paying soccer players. They showed how the one positive the country had was its soccer team. And they talked about Pablo Escobar, and had a great interview with his former accomplice from his jail cell.

    Then the second half happened. They rambled on, they derived from the script and things just got boring. The ending really put over how tragic Andres Escobar's death was, but that did not excuse the 20 minutes of rambling. If this was a 90 minute movie it would have been perfect.
