Based on the true story of journalist Gary Webb. The film takes place in the mid-1990s, when Webb uncovered the CIA’s past role in importing huge amounts of cocaine into the U.S. that was aggressively sold in ghettos across the country to raise money for the Nicaraguan Contras’ rebel army. Despite enormous pressure not to, Webb chose to pursue the story and went public with his evidence, publishing the series “Dark Alliance”. As a result he experienced a vicious smear campaign fueled by the CIA. At that point Webb found himself defending his integrity, his family, and his life.

This is a true story about a San Jose Mercury News journalist who wrote articles about the CIA and cocaine being brought into California in order to fund contras in Nicaragua. Good to see the journalist’s difficulties in exposing big issues. In the light of all the whistle blowing of recent days it’s interesting to see the earlier cases that didn’t have the media explosion of today.
Jeremy Renner suits the role well your typical everyman against the establishment. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is good too – not to glamorous but watchable.
