    With Traffic, Steven Soderbergh weaves a clever tale where several story strands gradually merge together to tell a complex story of the illegal drug trade either side of the US-Mexico border. A fantastic cast makes for a compelling, complex and dark story which poses many questions about how the authorities have fought the "War on drugs" for decades and seem to have made no impact. This is an intelligent, gripping drama which offers no easy solutions to a highly complex issue and leaves plenty of questions about the morally ambiguous stance that it takes.

    Traffic is a 2000 American crime drama film directed by Steven Soderbergh. This is definitely an ambitious movie, with drugs as its central theme. It details the effects of drugs on numerous sections of the community, from start till end, across borders, and involving governments along with family members. Although long, I never found the movie slow, and was quite interested to see how it would end. It contains some interesting cinematographic effects, as well as a few powerful moments. AAN GGND 1001

    With everything that's done right, this is Traffic. That's right. The movie based on a TV series on Traffik. It's the story, well, stories, about illegal drug trading as in drug traffiking and in three stories, a few of the cast, Michael Douglas, Don Cheadle, Benicio de Toro, Dennis Quaid, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Luis Guzman are here to stop the drugs from smuggling around the world. Speaking of mixing three stories together you'll have to watch this movie two or three times to actually understand the full film of why it's so different. Besides, it won 4 Oscars including one for Best Director, Steven Soderbergh. Yep, it also has the great cinematography like it was like you're watching the TV series. He also directed another film which is in the exact same year it was nominated for Best Director is Erin Brockovich. If you're a fan of Trainspotting you'll probably like this one. If you do like it there's only one thing I have to say to you is: Don't do drugs.

    Story about drug trafficking in Mexico and the war on drugs in the USA. I have mixed feelings about this movie. Some of it is good, while other parts seemed too simple and dumbed down. The acting is excellent. Good but not great.

    Traffic is well organized and extremely engaging film largely from a star studded cast. Benicio Del Toro takes home an Oscar with a brilliant performance as Javier a Mexican police officer who is just trying to get by. Soderbergh knows what he is doing with the ability to control the cast and their characters and uses innovative techniques such as an interesting use of color. Soderbergh creates well in-depth stories that connect with poise and a certain wit that only Soderbergh can create. However, where this movie lacked was an in-depth African-American story line; a group of people largely affected by American drug trafficking, but this is largely because there is already three stories being told. Moreover, Soderbergh didn't forget about this side and brings up the topic briefly.

    Different, ambitious, textured, rich, disturbing. Several stories, but not difficult to follow. Benefit Del Toro - great. Some of Michael Douglas' actions, lines, didn't ring true. Extremely powerful scene with his daughter and dealer.

    A really compelling story about the war on drugs. The entire cast is incredible especially Benicio Del Toro and Michael Douglas. This is my first Steven Soderbergh film. It really gives you a great insight into how drugs can ruin people's lives from all different backgrounds and traits. My only criticism would be that it is a little too long.
