Cocaine Cowboys

The film explores the rise of cocaine and resulting crime epidemic that swept the American city of Miami, Florida in the 1970s and 1980s. The producers of Cocaine Cowboys use interviews with law enforcement, journalists, lawyers, former drug smugglers and gang members to provide a first hand perspective of the Miami drug war.

After watching this, the film Scarface doesn't seem so OTT or far fetched!

80 Blocks from tiffany's

Documentary that looks at the severe social decay in the South Bronx during the 1970s.
The South Bronx of today is a much different place than it was 30 years ago, a world that has long since vanished. 80 Blocks... is a compelling and one-of-a-kind look into this time seen through the eyes of those trapped in a domestic warzone.


Tabloid (2010) is an American documentary film by Errol Morris. It tells the story of Joyce McKinney, a former Miss Wyoming, who in the 70s was accused of kidnapping and raping Kirk Anderson, an American Mormon missionary. The incident, known as the Mormon sex in chains case, became a major tabloid story in Britain and triggered a circulation battle between two popular newspapers, The Daily Mirror and The Daily Express.

There's more to it than that, it also gets into how she cloned one of her dead pets!
