Overview

In the acclaimed Newmarket Shooting Script series format comes the complete script by Stephen Gaghan (Rules of Engagement) of the new film directed by Steven Soderbergh (Erin Brockovich, Out of Sight), a contemporary thriller set in the world of drug trafficking, starring an ensemble cast that includes Michael Douglas, Don Cheadle, Benicio Del Toro, Albert Finney, Luis Guzman, Dennis Quaid, and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

From a border policeman in Mexico caught in a web of corruption, to the conservative judge appointed by the President as the new anti-drug czar, to undercover DEA agents fighting a drug cartel, to the wife of a drug baron and the judge's drug-addicted teenage daughter, Traffic evokes the high stakes and high risks of the drug trade, as seen through a series of interrelated stories, some of which are highly personal and some of which are filled with intrigue and danger.

The book includes the complete shooting script, an introduction by director Steven Soderbergh and screenwriter Stephen Gaghan, movie stills, and complete credits.

Editorial Reviews

Karen Durbin
Soderbergh hits a new high....A classic American-issues movie, in the tradition of Gentleman's Agreement or Bad Day at Black Rock. —Elle
Library Journal
Emmy Award-winning writer Gaghan recently added another trophy to his mantel with his Golden Globe Award for Best Screenplay for Traffic. The amorphous and morally ambivalent North American drug trade is the tapestry into which three seemingly disconnected stories are woven, involving Mexican border police, the new U.S. drug czar and his teenage daughter, and dedicated DEA agents. Drugs taint everyone, and no character escapes unscathed. Director Steven Soderbergh, who contributes to the introduction, is the frontrunner for the director's Oscar; he's nominated for both Traffic and Erin Brockovich. Production stills and cast and crew production credits are provided. With its significant box office appeal, treatment of large cultural issues, and awards attention (it's nominated for a total of four Academy Awards, including Best Adapted Screenplay), this belongs in all popular film collections.

    An Informative and Compelling Story

    I really enjoyed this story of drug lords and the people who try to stop them. The way that Soderbergh did some of the dialogue in Spanish really gave a realistic feel to the movie. It felt like I was watching a documentary, rather than Hollywood movie. The struggle that Benicio Del Toro's character faces shows the reality to any cop's occupation and their sense of morality.

    GREAT TREATMENT

    Loved the movie and this book. Excellent study course for aspiring screenplay writers. Looking forward to the actual book. It and Blow are very interesting.

    Very realistic!

    The movie looked more like a docudrama or a special report than a thriller as it was so realistic. Soderbergh and the cast and film crew certainly did an excellent job. To have the shooting script is another advantage and for film aficionados and film students this screenplay is a 'Must' in their collection and resource materials. Another powerful thriller that I recently read and very much recommend as the scenes come alive from the printed page just like in a movie is the realistic and edgy thriller THE CONSULTANT by Alec Donzi.
