Barry Seal - Only in America
  • a.k.a. Barry Seal: Only in America

Einst war Barry Seal ein Pilot der amerikanischen TWA-Fluggesellschaft. Doch als die 1980er Jahre anbrechen, wird aus dem zuvor ehrenwerten Mann ein Drogenschmuggler. Gewinnbringend arbeitet er mit Drogenlords in Nicaragua zusammen und wird damit reich. Dann allerdings fliegen Barrys illegale Geschäfte auf. Um einer Verurteilung zu entgehen, lässt er sich von der Drogenabteilung der CIA anheuern, um das Medellín Cartel auszuspionieren. Seine Schmugglertätigkeit gibt Seal trotzdem nicht auf.

Barry Seal - Una storia americana

1979. Jimmy Carter sciocca la nazione con il suo discorso sulla "crisi di fiducia", mentre il popolo si prepara a votare Reagan. Barry Seal, pilota di aerei di linea che arrotonda con il contrabbando, viene contattato dalla CIA per spiare le attività dei guerriglieri sandinisti in Nicaragua. Sarà l'inizio di una serie di opportunità, sempre meno lecite e sempre più rischiose. La storia di Hollywood è piena di autori che hanno scelto di divenire lavoratori su commissione, sviluppando un mimetismo esemplare e prestandosi ai progetti più disparati. Quello di Doug Liman sembrava uno di questi casi, ma in Barry Seal qualche traccia dello spirito che infondeva Swingers, delizioso debutto scritto da Jon Favreau, è possibile ritrovarla.
