Default Netflix: Cartel Land

Just watched this, I have to say it was spectacular. Roller coaster ride of emotions and has you on the edge of your seat throughout the documentary. Also not for the faint of heart, has some graphic scenes. Must watch to the very end.

I watched it, the main story had a narrative framed just like many fictional tales, the ole rise to power trying to make a "good difference" but then just becoming what it was you were fighting against in the first place. It felt really uneven and I did not feel like I was being given a very wide or true view into the problem at large in terms of facts, but then again, it's a hard thing to make "true" movies. It was interesting and depressing overall.

Then , the American guys protecting the border, the lead fellow makes for a good character indeed, at first seemed like they had a caring sort of mission they've tasked themselves with, but then one of the other guys in their group opened his mouth and the idiocy and basic racism coming forth made me figure that is probably a part of the agenda of the majority of those guys even though is a perception they seem to want to fight against when it comes to how others see them.

Thanks for the heads up, I'm going to have to check it out. Narcos from Netflix was one of the best series I've seen. But this sounds good.

Mexico is one F'd up country. Government/police are extremely corrupt. In my opinion it's beyond repair.

There are a lot of places in Mexico where the entire police force are the hit men for the cartels and the mayors and governors are the leaders of the cartels. You really can't get more corrupt then that. That's absolute corruption. Plus it's illegal to own a gun. Do you really blame the Mexicans for trying to get here at any cost?

I saw it when it came out on A&E. I thought it was great.

It was decent. I thought Narco Cultura was better however. That should still be available on Netflix as well. Worth a watch if you haven't seen it.

Corruption beyond repair does not see international boundaries.

Narcos was a great Netflix series, I'll have to check this out. I thought they were doing one season of Narcos, nope, at least one more.
