Fresh off her epic showing at the Toronto International Film Festival (or TIFF, as the festival is known to her friends), Nanette Burstein and the good people at Showtime are dropping her new Feature Documentary tomorrow night at 9pm. Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee, tells the story of tech millionaire John McAfee – famed inventor of anti-virus software – and how he went off the grid to live in Belize, building a compound and harem, becoming a drug lord and developing an armed security force to guard himself against the police… That is, until he became a suspect in his neighbor’s murder and had to make his escape back to the U.S.
Check your local listings to ensure you don’t miss a moment of the action. But if you Google the movie be sure to Google the entire title, not just Gringo. If you Google “Gringo” the top result will be Mel Gibson’s movie Get the Gringo and that’s a whole different flick. One movie stars an insane racist millionaire who moves
to his own private island where he arms himself and terrorizes anyone who comes within a hundred feet of him and the other movie stars John McAfee.
