Gladiator vs Traffic For a movie to be nominated for Best Picture it must be able to capture an audiences attention early and not let go for the entire movie Gladiator and Traffic do just that Both these films are extremely strong at all the points an Oscar movie must be plot acting music and script Soria Ebert said Our laws against illegal drugs function as a price support system for the criminal drug industry They do not stop drugs Despite billions of dollars spent and a toll of death addiction crime corruption and lives wasted in prison it is possible today for anyone who wants drugs to get them For someone my age says a high school student in Traffic its a lot easier to get drugs than it is to get alcohol Who supports the drug law enforcement industry A good many honest and sincere people to be sure Also politicians who may know drug laws are futile but dont have the nerve to appear soft on the issue And corrupt lawmen who find drugs a lucrative source of bribes kickbacks and payoffs And the drug cartels themselves since the laws make their business so profitable sic If the decriminalization of drugs was ever seriously considered in this country the opponents would include not only high-minded public servants but also the kingpins of the illegal drug industry Ebert These are the conclusions that Mr Ebert draws from Steven Soderberghs film Traffic From this movie it seems that the war on drugs is hopeless and hardly worth attempting to stop Ebert continues The movie tells several parallel stories which sometimes link but usually do not We sic meet two Mexican drug enforcement cops two San Diego-based DEA agents a mid-level wholesaler who imports drugs from Mexico a high-level rug millionaire who seems to be a respectable businessman a Ohio state supreme court judge who is appointed the US drug czar and his teenage daughter
