An inspired melding of fact and fiction: the Colombian drug trafficker Evaristo Porras, at the height of his criminal ecstasy in the 1980’s, built himself a mansion modelled on the one seen in the TV soap opera DYNASTY. Today it is a paltry ruin, merging into the surrounding forest – so Huertas Millán, expert in “ethnographic fiction”, intercuts it with DYNASTY footage. There is a further element in this intoxicating mix: a shadowy witness-survivor-narrator, telling the historic, SCARFACE-like tale of the Medellín cartel, relating his own nightmarish hallucinations: like the cocaine, mansions and gangsters, he too will fade away. (Adrian Martin)
