Editorial Reviews

Charles Cosby's life is changed forever when he writes a fan letter to the "Cocaine Godmother" Griselda Blanco, who is serving time in a federal prison. Six months later, Cosby is a multi-millionaire, Blanco's lover, and the head of her $40 million a year cocaine business. Also known as "The Black Widow" for her propensity to permanently dispose of her men when she's done with them, Blanco stops at nothing to ensure that Charles is faithful. Cosby soon learns he's in way over his head.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good - But Not as Amazing as Cocaine Cowboys March 15, 2010
By Compay
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While Hustlin' with the Godmother is by no means a five-star documentary like Cocaine Cowboys, the reviews of one and two stars are overly critical. They don't market it as a Miami drug war documentary, they promote the DVD for what it is: the relationship between Charles Cosby and Griselda Blanco. In that respect, it's a solid documentary that gives you a more detailed look at the life of the Godmother, and how Cosby made it snow in Oakland.

Hustlin' with the Godmother can't hold a candle to the original Cocaine Cowboys DVD. But then again, most drug documentaries don't either. You'll appreciate CC2 if you approach it as it's own documentary about a guy who goes from being a small-time dealer, to an instant millionaire with the most deadly woman in the game.

There are several things that I really appreciated about the DVD. The first is that stories are re-enacted through incredible animation sequences, which makes for great visuals. The second is that you finally find out how Griselda's enforcer Rivi sank the original trial against the Godmother. And third, the introduction of "The Real Scarface" theme by Bay Area rapper Ncredable, which Rakontur used for the DVD.

I bought the DVD from Amazon; it makes a good watch every now and then, though it isn't the best documentary in my collection. I'd say rent it once before deciding on buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as the first in its own way May 31, 2011
Format:DVD
This film is just as compelling and full of information as the first. I'll admit it is less comprehensive. But this film's power comes from its intimacy and its roots in street reality. You may not like Charles Cosby or his crowd, but this is who they were and what they did. They aren't the handsome white pilots, distributors and DEA agents who did all the talking in the original Cocaine Cowboys. If you can accept that, you'll enjoy this film and learn something about the early days of drug dealing in Oakland and towns like it. If you look closely at all the negative reviews here, you'll notice that most are written from a position of ignorance and superiority. These are the kind of people who voted for Reagan and the Bushes every time but won't admit it in public. A few are obvious racists, cop-lovers and Nancy Reagan style moralists. Mr. Cosby is not telling folks what they want to hear. He's keeping it real. He stretches the truth in places, but he was no doubt there, wrapped in the arms of the deadliest female queenpin of all time. Ms. Griselda Blanco killed 250 people, including many of her lovers and husbands. This young man Cosby would visit her in prison to have sex with her. Cosby was a fearless young man who risked death and incarceration at every step. Criticizing him or any of this film's subjects for their ghetto ways and slang talk is like blaming tigers for having stripes and survival instincts. Those who think this film glorifies the drug trade should remember how Charles Cosby has turned his back on it and still lives in terror of Griselda's revenge.

I like the story. I am from Cali, therefore I could relate to the area and what was going on at that time. They did not hold anything back. I show all my friend the movie when they came to visit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Narco Blanco May 8, 2013
Format:DVD
I actually found it incredibly interesting. Mainly thanks to Charles Cosby who is incredibly articulate, detailed and intelligent in his narration. He explains how he caught a story on tv about a woman known as 'The Godmother', Griselda Blanco -the most notorious and violent drug kingpin that ever lived. When Cosby was a teenager, Blanco controlled the biggest drug cartel in the world, and most certainly because of that he was extremely attracted to Blanco and became completely intoxicated by her life. He began writing her letters after she was eventually incarcerated in prison. So Cosby and Blanco formed a close relationship and Cosby visited her in prison often. He began to look out for Blanco's family members. From this time on Cosby rose in power to become one of the most successful drug dealers in history. To look at Cosby and to hear such articulation and intelligence, it is difficult to understand what the atraction was in Blanco except for the lust for money and power. Blanco is said to have contracted more than 200 murders over a period of 30 years. Cosby narrates through the entire film beginging with Blanco's days as a child, to her rise in power, and her eventual downfall, and shares his own experiences with Blanco as well as his own rise and fall. To look at Cosby now it is nearly impossible to believe he was part of such a brutal regime. Cosby lives today as a free man, which I find suprising considering that he himself admits to eventually becoming one of the highest ranking members of 'The Godmother's' violent and massive drug cartel. It's great that he has turned his life around and lives respectable and upstanding citizen now. He is a very lucky man to say the least, because by all rights he should have been serving a life sentence, which leaves us to wonder what has become of our judicial systems in America.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Godmother April 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I already had viewed a copy of this but I lost it and wanted to have it in my library. I'd been watching what happened to the Godmother and found out that she was shot late in 2012 in her own country.

Most of the documentary film is based on one of Griselda Blanco's lovers, which definitively is biased. I would have interviewed more people.
