I have successfully avoided Blow for a long time until yesterday. I knew I would hate it for being a “Hollywood” version of the truth.
George Jung, the drug dealer portrayed in this movie is sitting in a prison right now, waiting for his daughter to come visit him. He will be waiting until 2015. Or will he?
Johnny Depp’s performance is excellent and the rest of the characters are very well cast also. Kid grows up in a middle class family, mother is a fuck up, leaves serveral times because there’s no money but always comes back, father is glorified, kid swears never to be poor or become like his parents (can’t escape destiny, we all are images of our parents, scary huh?), kid grows up and goes to California where all the girls are pretty and everyone gets stoned.
