Back of the Rack
Director Steven Soderbergh (“Ocean’s Eleven” series, “Erin Brockovich”) delivered a true masterpiece in this layered, multistory epic about the war on drugs and its effects on a variety of people, from a conservative U.S. judge (Michael Douglas), who’s about to be appointed drug czar, to the wife of a drug importer (Catherine Zeta-Jones), who is forced to become involved in the trade to save her family. A brilliant cast, including Don Cheadle, Benicio Del Toro (who won an Oscar for the film), Amy Irving and Dennis Quaid bring Stephen Gaghan’s taut, fascinating script to vivid life.
Nearly a dozen years after its initial release, “Traffic” remains a vibrant and thought-provoking portrait of a major personal, ethical and political problem. Give it another viewing soon.
MPAA Rating: R for pervasive profanity, violence, drug content, nudity and sexual situations.
