Narco Cultura (2013)

The documentary paints an interesting picture of the current state of Mexico and the impact the war on drugs has had on its culture, like the entire narcocorrido music genre, where they idolize and portray drug cartel lifestyle as acceptable and cool, in a very similar fashion to the early gangsta rap culture. For someone who has only read about the drug war from newspapers and seen in depicted in TV and movies, getting to see things from the P.O.V of a local police officer gave an entirely new dimension to Mexico’s drug problem. Money well spent on this one.
