In Cocaine Cowboys: The Kings of Miami, the city of Miami isn’t just a backdrop. It’s a character unto itself: flashy, gritty, hedonistic, and full of cocaine. At its peak, 70 percent of the country’s supply passed through Miami, turning local boys like Sal Magluta and Willy Falcon into billionaire cocaine kingpins.
