Postscript: From Culiacán to Cannes

Quitting narco cinema has meant the most gorgeously pangfree break with any of the addictions I’ve had to curtail along my 15-year journey from eternal youth to premature grey. On the obsessive-compulsive meter aligning my nervous system, the films rank somewhere in the busy middle: just above cinnamon nicotine gum, but still several notches below tutti frutti nicotine gum. Three weeks clean, the cravings have been manageable and particular, and the tricks of self-delusion largely inoffensive. As for no longer having to write about narco cinema, let me say how wonderful the release is when every second page no longer brings a new moustache to describe.
