Traffic (2000 movie)

Traffic is a film directed by Steven Soderbergh that explores the intricacies of the illegal drug trade from a number of perspectives: user, politician, trafficker. It stars Michael Douglas.

Based loosely around the Channel 4 television series Traffik[?], the film avoids sanctimony and was responsible for renewed discussion of drug issues in the United States.

The movie stars: Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Salma Hayek, Albert Finney

Soderbergh won an Academy Award for Directing for the film.

Rumour has it that George W. Bush sat down with his drug czar[?] and told him to watch Traffic, saying, this is what is what the drug situation is like in America.
