Probably the most widely-regarded of the ESPN 30-for-30 documentaries - and it warrants the praise it has received. Jeff and Michael Zimbalist craft the film by managing to bring in some huge names - soccer stars, politicians, people who were close to Pablo Escobar, relatives of both men - and it through these personal connections, while tying together drug trafficking with the rise of soccer, that makes this so compelling. Certainly among the better offerings and highly recommended.
