I saw “American Made” on dvd when it was first released. It was a moderately enjoyable film to watch like most films starring Tom Cruise. I didn’t know about the Mena conspiracy or the connection of Barry Seal with the Iran Contra affair. The North American media blackout guaranteed that most Americans would never know the truth.
Now I want to rewatch the film, see how much Hollywood altered the reality and glamorized the whole US government’s corruption and hypocrisy. The so called war on drugs has imprisoned how many poor people and made millions for the wealthy elites. Why wasn’t Clinton impeached?! I don’t care if Trump is impeached, I’m not on his side either. It isn’t an accident that poor migrants are fleeing from drug cartels that the US government essentially sponsored. I’m sick of the corruption in the FBI and the rest. If you’re a whistleblower, going to the FBI or even the police is probably the worst thing you could do.
