Film Synopsis:
In the turbulence of the 1970s, the international drug trade underwent a fast, violent and lucrative revolution — and one ordinary American was at its center. He could have been your next-door neighbor. But in just a few short years, George Jung (Johnny Depp), a high-school football star from Small Town USA, single handedly became the world’s premiere importer of cocaine from Colombia’s Medellin cartel, changing the course of an entire generation.
Blow is a high-velocity look at George Jung’s spectacular rise and fall — based on the true story of how powder cocaine turned into America’s biggest drug problem and how one man from the blue-collar suburbs became the 35 billion-dollar a-year conduit to the Colombian cartels. Ted Demme (The Ret, Beautiful Girls, Life and Monument Ave.) directs this riveting look at the manic allure — and dangerous reality — of a drug smuggler’s everyday life, and unfolds one of the great untold stories from the recent annals of American crime and culture.
With smart humor and probing detail, Blow outlines the lifestyle of a mega-rich smuggler —the border crossings, the ruthless negotiations, the sudden betrayals, the wild characters, the run-ins with the justice system, the inherent problems in dealing with massive amounts of cash, the temptations — and, ultimately, the tragedy of blowing all of your dreams for greed. Blow also stars Penelope Cruz, Rachel Griffiths, Franka Potente, Paul Reubens and Ethan Suplee. The screenplay is by Nick Cassavetes and David McKenna (American Histary X).

Album Notes and Credits


Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Photographer: Lorey Sebastian.
Muze PNote Starring Johnny Depp as a dashing young drug dealer, the film BLOW is an inside look at the underbelly of the drug trade, '70s style. Accordingly, the movie's soundtrack is laced with post-hippie classics like the Rolling Stones' pulsating "Can't You Hear Me KNocking" and the Marshall Tucker Band's southern-rock love song "Can't You See." The song selection does jump back and forth in time a bit, reaching back to Link Wray's instrumental twangfest "Rumble" and Cream's psychedelic blues-rock gem "Strange Brew," and forward to KC & the Sunshine Band's disco-riffic "Keep It Comin' Love." Nevertheless, this is an admirably eclectic collection (who can fault a soundtrack that includes the Bob Dylan oddity "All the Tired Horses?") that serves as a fine companion to the movie.
