A very good movie

4 years ago at Sep 20 10:38
I thought it was really a good flick but something really bothered me. Indeed, I found it rather confusing that Linda Hunt was playing a man. But a part from that, it is a very good movie. There are some good directing, good mood, good acting and some good chemistry between Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver. Definitely worth a look.

25 From 82: My Favorite Films Of 1982 (25 movies items)

"How does a movie have a female dwarf play the role of a male dwarf and pull it off? Easy. Film it on the year of living dangerously. Mel Gibson, riding on a fast train to super stardom, teams up once again with fellow Aussie mate, director Peter Weir, along with another rising star, Sigourny Weaver, in the international melodrama depicting the Indonesia Coup of 1965. And I gotta admit, I'm one of those people who knew absolutely nothing about any Indonesian coup from the sixties until I saw"
