9/11 buried this movie's release. The story revolves around post-cold war US Army Base in Germany, and with no enemies, the soldiers are bored. Crime, drugs and corruption are rampant thru the base. Meth labs are run from barracks, missiles are stolen and sold to Arab dealers in town.

It was filmed before 9/11, and understandably the studios did not want to release a movie that s... read more

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Joaquin Phoenix, I thought I should give it a try. Basically, it is a pretty obscure feature which was not even released in the US because it was premiered just 2 days before the tragic events of 09/11. Obviously, such an anti-military feature couldn’t be released in the middle of this tragedy and eventually it was r... read more

Description: Joaquin Phoenix stars in this dark service comedy as Ray Elwood, an Army clerk stationed in West Germany just before the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Part of a company made up almost entirely of ex-convicts and high school dropouts, Elwood takes advantage of his daft commanding officer, Col. Berman (Ed Harris), by selling heroin a ... (more)

Miika's Movie Diary - 2015 (193 movies items)

"29.1, Netflix Paikoin toimivaa satiiria amerikan sotapolitiikasta: tässä osa jenkkisotilaista ei edes tiedä tai välitä minkä takia Berliinissä ollaan, ja aika kuluukin huumeiden valmistamiseen ja muihin laittomuuksiin. Erityisesti tankeilla sekoilu pikku pöhnässä oli repeilyttävää katseltavaa, ja Phoenixin roolisuoritus on jälleen pätevä. Elokuvan sävy on loppuunsa kuitenkin turhan totinen ja sivujuonet ja -henkilöt syövät varsinaisen teeman tehoa - paremmin olisi itseeni is"

“I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Joaquin Phoenix, I thought I should give it a try. Basically, it is a pretty obscure feature which was not even released in the US because it was premiered just 2 days before the tragic events of 09/11. Obviously, such an anti-military feature couldn’t be released in the middle of this tragedy and eventually it was released a year later (on the foreign market) and was barely noticed. I think it’s a shame because it is actually a pretty good flick dealing with anti-establishment behaviors. Of course, it was nothing really amazing but I thought it was a fun and entertaining feature. It also displays the range of Joaquin Phoenix, one of the best actors of his generation, and he was again really good in such a” read more

It was filmed before 9/11, and understandably the studios did not want to release a movie that shows the US Army is such a negative light, so the release was buried, and it pretty much went straight to DVD. But if you're looking for a great movie, superb plot, and excellent acting, look no further and check this flick out.” read more
