Critics reviews

While its treatment of the drug war is unquestionably shallow, and its rhythms essentially televisual, Traffic crackles and growls and sparks in a way that precious few issue-oriented dramas can match. I’d happily watch a six-hour version.

I don’t get it. Maybe my bias against drug dealers, drug barons, and drug addicts as interesting characters is responsible, but I don’t see this slightly better-than-average drug thriller, with slightly better-than-average direction by Steven Soderbergh, as anything more than a routine rubber-stamping of genre reflexes.
