The final part of the film is unquestionably the bleakest. The drug cartels are not only shown to be ruthless but also capable of ingenuity and rapid flexibility (they are ‘foot-loose’, quite literally). Drug cartels, as with other non-state actors, not only have more resources than the state, but also actually possess a network-like organisation that can embed itself structurally inside cities and circumvent state authorities by bribery, violence and volume of traffic.
