Cocaine Cowboys

The cocaine trade of the 70s and 80s had an indelible impact on contemporary Miami, forever changing a once sleepy retirement community into one of the world’s most glamorous, and crime-ridden hot spots. Cocaine Cowboys is the true story of the how that happened, told by its many protagonists.

MUBI's take

Tracing the true story that inspired the likes of Scarface and Miami Vice, this engrossing, enormously entertaining documentary is darkly comedic and full of pleasures. Intoxicating in its own fittingly lurid way, frenetic in its pace, and soundtracked to nostalgic synth sounds of the 80s.
