When Have Drugs Starred on the Silver Screen?

Traffic 1 of 12

Steven Soderbergh's 'Traffic' would not exist without drug addiction or the drug trade. His 2000 drug epic is one of most intelligent, heartbreaking and fascinating films (drug-related or otherwise) ever to appear on the big screen. That he can spin a captivating and masterful story of drug czars, cartels, teenage addiction, parental guilt and the war on drugs with all pieces coming together in challenging, haunting and undeniably realistic ways is nothing short of a miracle.
