IPFS News Link • Drug War


• by Jacob G. Hornberger

At the same time, the drug war has transformed Mexico's culture. A good manifestation of this is the large number of movies, documentaries, and telenovelas dealing with the drug war. A good example is Narcos: Mexico, Seasons 1 and 2, which aires on Netflix. The series is so good that viewers are now anxiously awaiting Season 3.

I just finished watching Season 1 of Netflix's Ingobernable, a drug-war telenovela starring Kate del Castillo, one of the most famous actresses in Mexico. At first I thought that this was going to be a rather predictable, boring series about a political couple with marital problems. How wrong I was! The series has turned out to be great watching, especially because of the drug-war aspects of the movie.
