George Jung (Johnny Depp) doesn't want to live like his father (Ray Liotta)--always short of money, and always berated by his mother. So, he sets off for California, to live on the beach. George finds he can make a living selling drugs. One day he learns he could make more money by shipping drugs across the country. So, he does. Needing a bigger supply of drugs, he goes to Columbia, finds his way to Medellin, and meets Pablo Escobar (Cliff Curtis). George stumbles into becoming the biggest trafficker of cocaine in the U.S.

In BLOW, director Ted Demme and scriptwriters Nick Cassevetes and David McKenna chart George's strange course into a world of girls and sun, drugs and fun. It's all so easy. But, maybe one day George will run into trouble with other dealers, or the police. Depp gives one of his best performances as George. And Demme's eccentric but successful casting includes German actress Franka Potente as George's girlfriend; Spanish actress Penelope Cruz as his wife; Australian actress Rachel Griffiths giving a withering performance as his mother; and Paul Reubens giving a beautifully judged performance as a hairdresser-cum-drug dealer.

 Depp's 2nd best drug film

| | See all playboy's reviews (76)

Top 100 DVD Reviewer

This interesting movie about the true story of George Jung (Johny Deep) and how he became, with Pablo Escobar and the Medellin cartel, some of the great providers of the cocaine in the United States. How he started with marijuana, and in the search of money, profit and material stuffs, turning then to the white powder, and off course, a more complicated and dangerous business.

A story that shows the role of a man that insists is business which keeps destroying his life; and shows some details of how the drug business in the 70's and 80's was being held, the tactics, contacts, betray, marketing, sales, distribution and blood behind it. Johny Deep shows that he is a very versatile actor, Penelope Cruz makes a really bad acting (won the Razzie award that year), Franka Potente as always, incredible and charming.

Unlike other drug movies there is a story to be told which sits outside the crime and corruption, a story which is told well, that shows the consequences of some really bad decisions and acts in the pursuit of the "easy money"

This is one of those few films which will leave you speachless, the ending is a shock.

Don't let the title fool you ( IT'S NOT A PORNO!). This is the true story of Americas biggest drug importer George Jung ( JOHNNY DEPP) from the hippy innocence of the 60's to the 80's as he persued the American dream.
This film has the energy of Boogey Nights and has so much Cocaine snorting it would impress Scarface.
Depp as usual is excellent and compelling, and Penelope Cruze is engrossing as his drug addict wife. The overall effect of the film is compelling and completely gripping.
A great story that is very well told, with slick direction.
This film will blow you away!

 Why Should We Be Interested?

I'm clearly the minority here. I've just watched this movie all the way through and I couldn't see any point in it. Why was it made? Where is the plot, where is the drama? There wasn't even any action. It is about somebody who had nothing going for him and found himself at the heart of the drugs trade. George Jung, as portrayed, was a one-dimensional character, just like his mother and his wife. He made a lot of money and he lost it and ended up in jail. So don't trade drugs folks! Otherwise, so what? Not even Johnny Depp or Penelope Cruz could inject their flat roles with any interest. Maybe a film about the cops on his case might have been more interesting. The film, like the main character, was a wash-out.
