--/10/16 The Infiltrator (2016)

Apparently true story of some fella who pretended to be a money launderer to dodgy firms, thus allowing him to play a small part in the eventual downfall of Pablo Escobar.

The Escobar story is so outlandish, even the basics seem ludicrous. During its most lucrative era, the cartel was spending $2000 a week on elastic bands to bundle up the (rest of the) money they were making. You could pretty much make up any story and people could probably swallow it as fact.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this film's sequel, The Infiltrator 2: The Escobar Moon Wars.

Also based on fact.
