In the 1980s, ruthless Colombian cocaine barons invaded Miami with a brand of violence unseen in this country since Prohibition-era Chicago - and it put the city on the map. "Cocaine Cowboys" is the true story of how Miami became the drug, murder and cash capital of the United States, told by the people who made it all happen.
"Cocaine Cowboys," the slick and bloody documentary detailing the effect the cocaine trade of the 1970s and '80s had on the city of Miami. A glitzy story of drugs, greed and death, it's not an elevating film, and it's not meant to be.
Before the cowboys came to town, Miami was a quiet place that featured, someone says, "a lot of old people sitting around in beach chairs waiting to die".
Then Colombia's Medellin cartel, "the world's largest cocaine smuggling organization," discovered the place, more and more Americans got the drug habit, and lots of numbers in Miami skyrocketed. Those included the millions of dollars placed in local banks and the murder count, which went from 104 in 1976 to 621 in 1981.
"Cocaine Cowboy's" story is told largely by a trio of men who were there. Jon Roberts claims to have overseen the shipping of more than $2-billion worth of cocaine from Colombia, pilot Mickey Munday says he personally flew in some 10 tons, and Jorge "Rivi" Ayala is currently in prison for numerous murders.
