The film's protagonist, Alan Parrot, seems by all accounts to be an unlikely hero: Mild mannered, a loner, a Caucasian American convert to Sikhism. But don't let the quiet demeanor fool you. Mr. Parrot is a fearless defender of the object of passion: Falcons the world over. In fact, he has made it his mission in life to save them from poachers and the black market, as well as the diluting of their gene pool through the lucrative creation of hybrids. Mr. Parrot make a fascinating a subject.
'Feathered Cocaine' is stunning, revelatory, and not to be missed.
