Cocaine Bear

The Goggler Podcast #338: Cocaine Bear

Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Today, on The Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review Elizabeth Banks’ violent and gory, wild and wacky, Cocaine Bear.

Cocaine Bear is now showing in Malaysian cinemas.

Sometime around 1 AM on Sept. 11, 1985, Andrew Carter Thornton II, an Army paratrooper-turned-racehorse trainer-turned-narcotics cop-turned-DEA agent- turned-lawyer-turned-cocaine smuggler (oh, and alleged CIA operative, too), made a series of bold choices under possible duress while flying higher than a kite — literally, and maybe figuratively, too — that would set in motion a chain events which, nearly four decades later, now culminates in a major motion picture. Inspired by the 1985 true story of a drug runner’s plane crash, missing cocaine, and the black bear that ate it, this wild dark comedy finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500-pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow… and blood.

Cocaine Bear was directed by Elizabeth Banks, produced by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, and stars Keri Russell, O’Shea Jackson, Jr., Christian Convery, Alden Ehrenreich, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Brooklynn Prince, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Kristofer Hivju, Hannah Hoekstra, Aaron Holiday, Margo Martindale, and Ray Liotta.
