Back in 2000 and 2001, everybody was talking about the movie “Traffic” The award winning thriller about America’s drug war won countless awards including Oscars for Best Actor (Benicio Del Toro), Best Director (Steven Soderbergh), Best Film Editing and Best Writing. It was also nominated for Best Picture, but lost out to “Gladiator”.
“Traffic” is one of those movies that have sat in my Netflix DVD queue for years, never quite making it to the top of the list. Fortunately, I can now remove it from my DVD queue because it’s coming to Netflix Instant August 27, 2012. It will probably sit in my instant queue for a while until I feel like an evening of depression. But it’s one of those movies a person must see before they die.
