      Audience Member Escobar: Pathologically narcissistic. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member what a horrible human being.good to know the story behind the monster. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member A truly interesting if not dragged out documentary of the son of the dead Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. Sins of My Father shows the struggles that the peaceful castaway Juan Escobar must face as an exiled Colombian living in Argentina. The backstory is not as encompassing as one would hope but the focus on Juan and his coming to terms of who and what he stands for is heartwarming and a testament to not judging others for who they came from. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting bio-documentary Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member 'What if you were the son of Pablo Escobar?' asks this documentary film starring Sebastian Marroquin, formerly known as Juan Pablo Escobar. The movie tells the story of Escobar through the eyes of his family and the victims of his violent control of the Colombian cocaine trade, specifically the living sons of Rodrigo Lara Bonilla and Luis Carlos Galan. As someone who previously knew very little about Escobar, this film presents the contradictions that surrounded his life and personality and continue to haunt those he left behind. The entire movie is in Spanish with English subtitles. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member I'm amazed that there's no info and picture for this fucking amazing movie. I am disappointed, Flixster. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
