In 1986, Federal agent Robert Mazur infiltrated Pablo Escobar’s drug-trafficking scene as a money laundering wizard. With the help of fellow agent Emir Abreu and rookie agent Kathy Ertz, Mazur was able to gather evidence that led to the indictments of 85 drug lords and the corrupt bankers who cleaned their dirty money, along with the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, one of the largest money-laundering banks in the world.
Their story – taken from Masur’s autobiography – has been adapted for film as The Infiltrator. It opens on July 13th. Check out the trailer after the jump.
If there’s anything more confusing than a list of Emmy® winners, I’m not sure I know what it is. Even after some horrendous snubs (not just Tatiana Maslany…), there were still a lot of worthy nominees this year. The problem is that deserved wins by the consistently excellent Breaking Bad (for example) were cheapened by repeat wins by shows that were not as good as other nominees in their class (Modern Family, for example).
For every win for something new and amazing (Fargo), there was a win that made no sense at all (Kathy Bates over Allison Tolman? WTF?). And how does Louis C.K. win for comedy writing and lose comedy series to Modern Family, Academy? You just said that Louie had the best (ie: funniest) comedy writing!
Anyway, follow the jump for a complete list of Emmy winners and, quite possibly, a wee bit of commentary.
