The character of Jung was portrayed by Johnny Depp. The film highlighted George Jung’s life as a drug dealer. It included the onset of his life as a dealer of marijuana in California until his climactic success in the setting up of the cocaine market in America.
As a person, there were two major facets of his life, one was his family and another was his job. During the early part of his life, Jung’s father can be considered as a positive influence for him especially through the lessons that he had taught young Jung. He was a moral and hard working person who gave importance to integrity. This can be considered as one of the reasons that Jung grew up to be a person who works hard for his dream. Although this was the case, the young Jung had been a witness to the failure that occurred to his father in terms of his job which is followed by problems in his marriage.
The movie explored the issue of drug abuse and the effects of illegal drug transactions. Although this was the main and apparent subject matter, one of the implied issues in the film is parenting. Being a parent had been one of the most important factors that affected the characters in the movie.Upon watching the movie Blow, there were different lessons that had been perceived. One was the importance of the guidance of the parents to the children.
Another was the importance of choosing the goodness over other things such as money, influence and material comfort. As what George Jung said in the film, choosing money over loved ones was never worth it.
