The Legend of Cocaine Island release date signals the arrival of yet another essential documentary experience for 2019 audiences.

Following the release of Leaving Neverland and The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann, audiences are in need of a documentary far less heavy.

Not that The Legend of Cocaine Island isn’t heavy. It’s an incredible story. However, it’s one hilariously told and accounted for by those directly involved.

So, let’s take a deeper look into another terrific 2019 documentary.
