Product Description

Blow (DVD)

Johnny Depp stars as George Jung, an average small-town American boy who pursues the American Dream his way--becoming the first American to import cocaine to the United States on a large scale, exposing college kids, high-paid professionals and the Hollywood glitterati to a new, hipper form of high. Sleeping, breathing and eating money, Jung lives a fantastic, no-rules life many have dreamed about. How did a typical boy next door become Pablo Escobar's right-hand man during the 1970s and '80s? The inside story of George Jung's rise and fall, the illicit flights, ruthless negotiations and brutal executions, are revealed in the riveting Blow.

Additional Features

The third Infinifilm finds another rich topic to showcase the fully loaded DVD line. Foremost is director Ted Demme's captivating interview with the real George Jung (the director also shares his commentary track with his subject). In addition Demme gives us a flippant, behind-the-scenes "Production Diary" and more than a half-hour of better-than-average deleted scenes (a few of which reveal the fate of a major character). The extemporaneous "Character Outtakes" are so good, more filmmakers should give it a try. One well-researched documentary segment traces the intertwined history of Colombia and cocaine; another relates the scientific explanation of getting high. With the Infinifilm feature, a viewer can access these materials separately or during the movie with seamless "jumps" to selected extras. A DVD-ROM feature incorporating the movie and printed script is an excellent finishing touch. --Doug Thomas
