Loving Pablo (2018)



Want to See

Critic Consensus: Loving Pablo bungles its seemingly cinematic real-life story -- and a pair of talented stars -- in producing a lurid biopic that adds nothing to the Escobar subgenre.

As if the figure of the king of drug trafficking wasn't a stereotype canonized by thrillers addicted to the dirty business, 'Loving Pablo' looks us right in the eyes and tells us it has just invented chicken soup..

Like flipping through the pages of a pulpy best-seller, watching Loving Pablo has its moments of guilty pleasure but leaves an empty feeling when you reach the end.

Long, loud and lurid, with a distinct whiff of week-old quesito colombiano.

Top Critic

Escobar is not without interest, sweep or colour, but bears signs of high-level, edit-suite indecision over what sort of movie it wants to be. It's an alluring product, inexactly cut.

Here neither music nor photography bring anything special and the truth is that the entire movie is mortgaged by its lack of quality. [Full review in Spanish]
