Critic Reviews for Drug Lord: The Legend Of Shorty

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

Driven by mostly Spanish-language folk music, the movie provides a potent if piecemeal counterbalance to the sensationalism of "Breaking Bad."

Compelling but ultimately unfulfilling ...

... turns out to be uneven and incomplete (with some graphic violence to illustrate its points), but compelling as it tries to separate fact from rumor amid a large-scale manhunt.

Reminiscent of Michael Moore's search for Roger Smith, arguably a more toxic figure than Shorty Guzman

November 14, 2014 | Full Review…

"Drug Lord: The Legend of Shorty" squanders an opportunity due to the common problem of contemporary documentaries, where the directors get so far in the way of their own story, that any context or objectivity is lost.

November 14, 2014 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Save for the vague aura of danger surrounding Guzmán, Drug Lord has trouble forming a coherent point of view.
