Movie Review
A cocksure Johnny Depp swaggers through a sleazy,
glamorous head trip about the '70s and '80s drug trade.

By Stephanie Zacharek

April 06, 2001 | The key to Ted Demme's wilfully amoral, zigzaggingly
pointless and pleasingly entertaining drug fable, "Blow," is in Johnny Depp's
walk. The movie takes us from the late '60s to the present, and through it all
Depp's carriage -- a loose-jointed cocksure swagger -- is the same whether he's
looking trim in a silky '70s leather jacket or puffy in a shabby '80s tracksuit. Even
with a soft roll of fat circling his middle (hey, even grooving, high-living drug
kingpins gotta eat), Depp walks like hipness has been bred into his very bones, a

sense-memory in the marrow handed down from scoundrel princes through the

Depp is the anchor in "Blow." The rest of the movie, dotted by sound
performances from Paul Reubens and Penélope Cruz, and a heart-
thumpingly dazzling one from Franka Potente ( "Run Lola Run" ), is like a paisley
curlicue swirling around him. Depp aside, the movie is higher on style than it is on
substance, but one of its strong suits is that it never stoops so low as to lecture us.
It throttles by with irresponsible abandon.

Adapted by David McKenna and Nick Cassavetes from Bruce Porter's book,
"Blow" is based on the true story of George Jung, a working-class Massachusetts
kid who made a fortune by becoming a major cocaine importer in the '70s and
'80s. It's impossible not to compare "Blow" with that other, ostensibly classier
recent drug movie, "Traffic," but "Blow" is a different creature altogether -- a
messier, sleazier, more glamorous one. It's more cavalier than "Traffic," but also
more pleasurable. "Traffic" is well made, and it doesn't preach. But it's extremely
self-conscious about making its big statements, and consequently it has a labored
feeling that's absent from Steven Soderbergh's other fine pictures ( "Out of Sight,"
say, or "The Limey" ).

Unlike "Traffic," "Blow" doesn't work as a procedural -- in other words, it doesn't
clearly explain the mechanics of how George got the damn stuff into the country.
Nor does it address the effects cocaine can have on people's lives (its potential to
ruin them, for example). The movie plays it safe by making it look as if all
George's customers are rich Hollywood assholes, and who cares about them? That
shirking of responsibility on Demme's part is going to be very disturbing to those
who feel that the message "Drugs Are Bad" has been underrepresented in our
culture, but most of the rest of the responsible adult population should be able to
handle it.

Demme has structured "Blow" as a rags-to-riches-to-rags story, and it almost has a
hoary, old-Hollywood feel. The movie wastes no time explaining how George
(Depp) became a drug runner, but it also unashamedly justifies George's career
choice: Depp's father (played by an extraordinarily sympathetic Ray Liotta) is the
kind of guy who can never make enough money to satisfy his demanding,
materialistic wife (the overly shrill Rachel Griffiths, who strikes the movie's single
biggest sour note). In fact, during particularly bad stretches, he makes barely
enough to keep the family afloat. In a latter-day riff on Scarlett O'Hara's "I'll never
go hungry again" speech, George vows never to be caught in the same position his
dad was. The key is that Depp doesn't deliver it as a corn-pone observation, and
for that reason his matter-of-factness about making money seems perfectly in line
with the bulging cornucopia of late-model sports cars and Florida mansions that's
to come later.

So young George heads out to California, where he hooks up with Barbara
(Potente), a gorgeous stewardess (that's what they were called in those days), and
quickly realizes that he can make a bundle selling marijuana to kids on the beach.
His schemes become more and more elaborate, and with the help of compatriots
Tuna (Ethan Suplee), Kevin (Max Perlich) and Barbara's hairdresser, Derek
(Reubens, charming as well as vaguely seedy and untrustworthy), George expands
his business, not to mention his potential risk.

The most glorious moments of "Blow" are packed into the first quarter, which
covers the last days of the '60s. George and his pals are living high on their
enormously profitable marijuana business, "borrowing" small planes to fly their
product in and frolicking together poolside, fast friends united by fast dough.
Potente, with her sandy blond bangs and sooty mascaraed eyes, looks like the
quintessential blasé '60s babe, but she both radiates and reflects golden
warmth: The picture cools noticeably when she disappears from it. Later, Depp
hooks up with glamorous Colombian firebrand Mirtha, played by Cruz, who's best
when she's allowed to run free as a sullen, sulky beauty who snorts coke while
pregnant ("I quit smoking!" she fires back at George, hilariously, when he
reproaches her) and cavalierly mispronounces words (she brands George as a hype

No character other than George is developed particularly well in "Blow," and the
story takes angular, wayward turns in its last two-thirds. The movie isn't
particularly well structured, and its scenes feel stringier and more disconnected as
the picture rolls on. Demme is happy to do little more than riff on the excess and
glamour of the '70s and '80s. As he builds his empire, George attempts greater
feats of derring-do, barely worrying that he might get caught and sent to prison --
he's clearly having too much fun, high not so much on his status as he is on taking
risks, fox-trotting with Colombian scumbag drug lords and importing ever-
increasing mounds of product.

But even in a movie as morally lax as "Blow," actions do have their consequences.
The one thing George fears losing is the love of his daughter, Kristina (played by
two actresses, Emma Roberts and the lissome, fragile-looking James King), and
sure enough, that's the one brand of heartache he can't escape. Depp plays the
scenes with his young daughter so tenderly that you never doubt he thinks the
world of her; still, he manages to betray her -- not intentionally, although it's
obvious that years of careless behavior on his part only lead to his undoing.

In the movie's terms, Kristina isn't so much a character as a convenience, a symbol
of the only thing George desperately doesn't want to lose; the cars, the houses, the
gorgeous wife can all fall by the wayside. George's behavior is bad enough that
you would completely expect Kristina to turn her back on her him. He's an A-1
loser dad who does little more than pay lip service to being principled, now and

then going "straight" only to be lured back to his former life by circumstances
supposedly out of his control.

But the way Depp plays him, it doesn't matter that the setup is a contrivance. He
reassures the young Kristina that he'd never leave her, saying "I couldn't live
without my heart," and somehow his velvet-brown eyes look sad in advance: He's
playing a man who just knows he's going to mess it up.

Although "Blow" is a movie that's basically designed to be consumed and flung
away, Depp delivers something that sticks. He makes it perfectly believable that
the fellow with the cocksure walk, a walk that doesn't change from the '60s to the
'90s even when his body no longer suits it, is really a family guy at his core. As a
man who's indirectly (or directly, depending on your stance) responsible for any
number of overdoses, deaths and lives run down the tubes, does George deserve
the love of a family at all? Maybe not. But his punishment, symbolic as it is, is
still almost more than we can bear to see Depp carry. In the end, George doesn't
get away with murder. His swagger, his smirky smile, his effortless confidence all
suggest that he's a hero to himself, a man who has walked away with every shred
of macho dignity intact. And yet it's all a ruse. As Depp plays George, the
unspoken shame of what he has done is just a blink away, deep inside his eyes.

Movie Trivia
        The actors snorted milk powder in the cocaine scenes.

        A lot of Johnny Depp's dialogue was improvised, including the scene
         where they are trying to find a place to put all their money from selling
         coke and his line "We're gonna need a bigger boat" (a quote from Jaws

        George Jung's daughter, Christina, had a bit part as a clerk but her scene
         was cut.

        More than ironic final movie for director Ted Demme since he died less
         than a year later while playing basketball, and cocaine was found in his

        Rachel Griffiths plays Ermine Jung (George's mother). The actress is
         really five years younger than Johnny Depp (George).

        Ray Liotta who plays George's (Johnny Depp) father is only six years
         older than Depp.

        To prepare for the role Johnny Depp interviewed the real George Jung in

     When George is sharing a cell in prison with Diego, George is seen
      reading a paperback while reclining on his top bunk. The book is "Hells
      Angels" written by Hunter S. Thompson, the author whom Depp
      previously portrayed in the movie Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

     When George is in the courtroom the first right before he finds out that
      Barbara's sick, the words that he is reciting to convince the judge that he
      is innocent are lines from Bob Dylan's song "It Ain't Me Babe" and
      Woody Guthrie's song "Pretty Boy Floyd".

Movie Goofs
     Crew or equipment visible: During long Steadicam shot in 1968 when
      they go to meet Derek Foreal, the assistant director can be seen on the
      left yelling, "Action".

     Incorrectly regarded as goofs: George's mother is visible following the
      action from the kitchen when George and Mirtha are fighting. It was
      originally intended that she should be part of the scene but the long shots
      are not used and her presence seems incongruous. It is not a member of
      the crew.

     Anachronisms: When the house is full of money, the twenty dollar bills
      are clearly from a much later issue.

     Continuity: The sweat stains on Diego's shirt when he first meets

     Continuity: George and Escobar's relative positions during their first

     Errors in geography: "Norman's Cay" is shown as hilly, yet it's in the
      Bahamas. The islands that comprise the Bahamas are flat.

     Anachronisms: Kevin refers to the need for pot at Hampshire College
      in 1969. Hampshire College did not admit its first class until 1970.

     Crew or equipment visible: When Tuna is driving the RV cross
      country, the crew truck is visible in the windshield.

        Continuity: The man that leads them to their first Mexican marijuana
         connection has his hair in a pony tail. In the next shot when they are
         following him, his hair is loose.

        Anachronisms: The clip that Mirtha was wearing in her hair at the end
         of the movie did not exist until the mid 1990s.

        Crew or equipment visible: In the final drug bust, a crew member
         wearing a gold watch is seen behind the plastic.

        Revealing mistakes: In the last scene, George obviously has a lot of
         make-up on to make him look older. After he and Kristina hug, her hair
         sticks to his face.

        Anachronisms: In the scene when George and his friends steal the
         small plane, there is a Boeing 757 taking off in the back ground. The
         757 was not designed or produced until the 1980s.
