No, this isn't a documentary about post-Illmatic Nas. This film covers the story of two real-life Escobars. Pablo Escobar was a notorious drug kingpin who controlled close to 80% of the world's cocaine business in the late '80s and early '90s. Andrés Escobar was a promising defender of Colombia's national soccer team. The Two Escobars attempts to connect the dots surrounding the theory that the brutal murder of Andrés was somehow purported by Pablo (who was gunned down more than half a year prior). Even if you're not a soccer fan, and you're completely indifferent about the World Cup that's going on right now, this documentary shouldn't be ignored. It explores how drug trafficking influenced many parts of Colombia's favorite pastime, and how the lives of spectators, owners, and players were all affected because of it. ESPN's 30 For 30 series officially premieres this film tonight at 9 p.m. EST.
