Purpose: Was he the good guy or the bad guy?
The purpose of the video was to explain how some people considered Escobar a "good guy" and others labeled him a terroristic, drug lord, which is where the title "Angel or Demon" comes into play. Today, when we hear the name Pablo Escobar, the first word that comes to mind is "criminal", well the documentary shows that many people during Escobar's time, viewed him as a hero and savior rather than the bad guy. The video opens the audience to the mindset of people who actually supported Pablo Escobar and all that he was doing, although his actions were against Colombia's government.
When creating this film, the director knew what he was getting himself into. The documentary undoubtingly has received many negative reviews and comments as it explains how people supported a criminal. Filming a documentary of any topic can be difficult, such as this one, especially when not everyone wants to hear the truth. By including the fact that Pablo Escobar was still criminal, even if he did have good intentions, the director showed that the documentary is not biased to one side of the argument.
