A good movie

2 years ago at Jan 11 22:18
For many years, Oliver Stone was a struggling director and at the time of production, he thought that this movie was going to be his last chance, having already made 'Seizure' and 'The Hand' which were both failures. However, in 1986, he made two movies which both managed to be, at least critically, successful. Of course, we all remember 'Platoon', crowned with the highest prize, in my opinion the... read more

Best Films of 1986 (60 movies items)

"This Oliver Stone film flew under the radar, possibly because 'Platoon' was enough for people to stomach or because it's even more anti-Us government. This has to be James Woods' best performance of his career and James Belushi is solid as well."

“For many years, Oliver Stone was a struggling director and at the time of production, he thought that this movie was going to be his last chance, having already made 'Seizure' and 'The Hand' which were both failures. However, in 1986, he made two movies which both managed to be, at least critically, successful. Of course, we all remember 'Platoon', crowned with the highest prize, in my opinion the best movie about the Vietnam war and rightfully considered as his magnum opus. However, we tend to forget the other movie he made back then in 1986, a movie so overlooked that it did not have a wide distribution in the United States. Eventually, it was re-released after the success of 'Platoon'. Anyway, it is actually a damned fine picture. Indeed, it is one of those edgy movies that Stone used t” read more
