"Unfortunately, all the academies in Mexico for training the special police, the investigative police, the military police, and the army, are used by the narcos as training grounds for future employees. You see, anyone who goes through an academy is ready to go to work for the narcos. [...] Of the 200 [police academy] graduates, 50 are already getting paid by the narcos." The Departed, or Goodfellas, in real life.

I have seen it, in English, legitimately. Incredibly dark, important film. If not to the systemic corruption and sanctioned drug trafficking which is crucially relevant to current affairs in Mexico, then it is an important piece into the psychology of someone who explains his "work" in a tone you expect a teacher would explain their administrative responsibilities.

His description of early enticement into the trade, through training, through to various responsibilities and participation in conducting brutality of "enormous suffering" at the will of "el patron", is chilling and deeply disturbing. This interview is not only the confession of a mass murderer, it is a testament to how organized and how rooted the drug industry is in the Mexican economy and politics. An echo of a tragic history which ripples across south America over the decades.

If you aren't into uncomfortable truths about the evil that lives in the hearts of humankind, stay very far away from this movie. The only part I didn't like was... Ah shit it's a spoiler. Nevermind.

La historia de un hombre que form贸 parte del c谩ncer social del narcotr谩fico, que destin贸 gran parte de su vida a servir a una organizaci贸n despiadada y sangrienta que con el tiempo creci贸 de tal forma que ahora es una instituci贸n delictiva sumamente organizada. El sicario le muestra al p煤blico lo s贸rdido de su vida, los pecados que le aquejan, las numerosas personas que asesin贸, los gritos dolor y s煤plicas de sus v铆ctimas y el irreparable da帽o a su alma. El sicario room 164 es la m谩s sincera y fiel perspectiva de la problem谩tica social n煤mero uno en M (C)xico y en el mundo. Un documental que todos deber铆amos de ver, sobretodo el mexicano, aquel que se encuentra vulnerable ante el invencible monstruo del narcotr谩fico.

Charles Bowden has covered the ugly underside of crime, corruption and murder in the Mexican drug war, particularly in Ciudad Juarez, for the last 20 years. He offers everything that serious investigative journalists in the mainstream press have long ceased to do, at considerable risk. More journalists die in Mexico than any other country in the world, simply for reporting accurate news stories. He provides a grim picture that needs desperately to be told.
