Preview, Oscar winners galore flesh out drug kingpin Escobar’s life in “Loving Pablo”

The definitive portrait of Pablo Escobar — monstrous, murderous “Robin Hood” of the Cocaine Wars — just might be one that stars the husband and wife Oscar winners Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem.

Throw in Peter Sarsgaard as the American drug agent chasing the bloody phantom, and you’ve got “Loving Pablo.” 

I just reviewed Spanish director Fernando Leon de Aranoa’s last writing/directing job, “A Perfect Day.” “A Perfect Day.” He did “Barrio” too. Why is it in English? To make more money.

Still, it looks intense, with a larger-than-life villain played by a guy who specializes in those.
