To a growing number of Latinos, narco-traffickers have become heroic outlaws, glorified by musicians who praise their success. “Narco Cultura” explores both the grisly reality and the pop fantasy of the drug war by contrasting the experiences of a crime scene investigator in Ciudad Juárez and a narcocorrido singer in Los Angeles. 102 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.
A “potent documentary.”— Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
