LaF dives deep into the based-on-a-true-story criminal drama The Infiltrator for episode 163. The Brad Furman directed film stars Bryan Cranston as U.S. Customs official Robert Mazur who went undercover to bring down Pablo Escobar's money laundering operations in the 80's. In addition, to Mr. Cranston's powerful performance, John Leguizamo, Benjamin Bratt, and Diane Kruger help to create one of the best ensembles of the year. In addition to reviewing the film, our hosts Richard Lusk and Ryan Bull compare the film to other recent crime dramas, argue about how John Leguizamo steals every scene he is in, and try to figure out why this film got released in the middle of summer.
