Los Hermanos Castano (2010)

51 mins

Watch it for free at Hulu!

Studio: Imagina US

Plot Summary: Three brothers, Fidel, Carlos, and Vicente, take up arms to avenge the assassination of their father by Columbian guerrillas.  They form one of the most feared paramilitary groups in recent history: The United Self-Defense Forces of Columbia (AU).

Serious Jest:  (Must See)  So far, this is my favorite of all of the documentaries I’ve watched concerning Columbia, and one of the most awesome gangster stories I’ve ever heard.  Remember how, on Entourage, Vince (played by Adrian Grenier) was trying so hard to make “Medellin,” a fictional movie about the life of Columbian drug lord Pablo Escobar?  I hope that there’s someone in Hollywood right now chasing this story with the same passion.  Unfortunately, non-Spanish speakers will have to wait for that film, because this documentary is completely in Spanish.
