Based on the book by Robert Mazur, a U.S. Customs special agent, who in the 1980s helped bust Pablo Escobar’s money-laundering organisation by going undercover as a corrupt businessman, The Infiltrator is a stylish thriller that looks in to one of history’s most audacious stings.
Amidst the lavish excess of the 1980s, Musella (Bryan Cranston) became a pivotal player for drug lords cleaning their dirty cash. He traded on mob connections, to become the confidant to scores of the international underworld and the bankers who enabled them.
However, Musella was, in fact, the undercover persona of Special Agent Robert Mazur: a US customs official who went further than any before him.
Laying his life on the line, he infiltrated the globe’s largest cartels and discovered just how deep into society their influence extended. Welcomed into an inner-circle of violence and corruption, Mazur found himself in the tight embrace of those he had promised to take down.
The Infiltrator also stars Emir Abreu (John Leguizamo – “Moulin Rouge”), Kathy Ertz (Diane Kruger -“Inglourious Basterds”), Yul Vazquez (“Captain Phillips”) Juliet Aubrey (“The Constant Gardener”), Elena Anaya (“Van Helsing”), and Amy Ryan (“Birdman) Olympia Dukakis (“Moonstruck”), Rubén Ochandiano (“Broken Embraces”), Simón Andreu (“Die Another Day”), Joseph Gilgun (“This Is England”), and Daniel Mays (“Atonement”).
