About the Movie

In this documentary sequel to the film that followed the development of the cocaine trade in 1980s-era Miami, filmmaker Billy Corben details the rise of Oakland, CA-based cocaine dealer Charles Cosby, who went from small-time drug slinger to multi-millionaire in a matter of months. Back in the early '90s, Cosby was selling ounces on the street and struggling to survive. Later, after writing a fan letter to "Cocaine Godmother" Griselda Blanco, who was serving a sentence in a federal prison, Cosby and Blanco struck up a lucrative partnership. Just six short months later, Cosby and Blanco were lovers, and the former fan now placed in charge of Blanco's 40-million-dollar a year cocaine business. But over the years, Blanco had earned the nickname "The Black Widow" for her propensity to drain men dry and permanently dispose of them when they ceased to be of use to her. Before long, Blanco becomes obsessed with ensuring that Cosby is faithful to her, and the former small-time drug dealer finally begins to realize that he may have inadvertently gotten in over his head.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A hyperventilating account of the blood-drenched Miami drug culture in the 1970s and 80s. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: As sensational as Scarface and a lot livelier than that Miami Vice movie. – Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: This is an ugly film, but with an undeniable allure. – G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle, Nov 11, 2006

Fresh: At half the length it would have been twice as good, but nevertheless it stokes a nostalgia some may have for a magic period in Miami history when it was ever so briefly the American Casablanca. – Stephen Hunter, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

No sequel is as good

Rent this....It is in no way as good as the first. I have watched the first over and over but could barely get through this. Cocaine Cowboys interviewed many people and had a lot of corroborating news footage that seemed to be more of a historical account of the events that took place in Miami in the early 80's. This seemed to more of an interview of a bragging drug dealer who uses words he doesn't understand (the end is ridiculous). I think most people will question whether or not a lot of this is true. Less of a documentary and more of a rap video.

Not as good as the first

completely agree with the first reviewer, the first was brilliant, second is boring

It was a nice movie

Good movie, I loved the song choices, I've rented it twice already.
