A good movie

1 year, 8 months 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

"Very good film set in El Salvador during a guerilla uprising. James Woods' greatest performance as a sleazy journalist with a heart. Oliver Stone's second best film behind Platoon."

My Brilliant and Witty 2013 Movie Diary (203 movies items)

" Love him or loathe him, you gotta admit that Oliver Stone has a dire passion for filmaking. Sure, sometimes he shoots and aims precisely and concisely, and other times he fizzles completely. Salvador is a fiery and intelligent diatribe that relays a fictionalized account of one journalist's vociferous adventures during the 80s El Savadorean revolution. I've hearted James Woods ever since I saw him in Videodrome, and I always admire the carnivorous and forceful performances that he never"

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
