Traffic: The Criterion Collection

Traffic examines the effect of drugs as politics, business, and lifestyle. Acting as his own director of photography, Steven Soderbergh employs an innovative, color-coded cinematic treatment to distinguish the interwoven stories of a newly appointed drug czar and his family, a West Coast kingpin's wife, a key informant, and cops on both sides of the U.S./Mexican border. The film, delivering a complex

and nuanced take on this issue of such great international importance without sacrificing any energy or

suspense, is a contemporary classic, and the winner of four Oscars, for best director, best screenplay, best

editing, and best supporting actor for Benicio del Toro.
