The Elite Squad (Netflix disc):

In 1997 Rio de Janeiro, Captain Nascimento has to find a substitute for his position while trying to take down drug dealers and criminals before the Pope visits.

Subtitled, so viewer beware, but great movie about how the system works, and such. Character-driven, lots of action and moving parts. Great ending, obviously won’t spoil it, but….dang….

This really pries into a person’s character and mentality, IMO. Def worth a watch.

I LOVED this movie. This was my introduction to Wagner Moura as well…who ended up playing Pablo Escobar expertly on Narcos years later.

Yep, he’s been in a couple things I’ve seen since I watched Narcos. Talented guy.
