A good movie

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I have it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. For many years, Oliver Stone had been 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.

View all Salvador reviews
A journalist, down on his luck in the US, drives to El Salvador to chronicle the events of the 1980 military dictatorship, including the assasination of Archbishop Oscar Romero. He forms an uneasy alliance with both guerillas in the countryside who want him to get pictures out to the US press, and the right-wing military, who want him to bring them photographs of the rebels. Meanwhile he has to find a way of protecting his Salvadorean girlfriend and getting her out of the country.

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-U.S. government. This has to be James Woods' best performance of his career and James Belushi is solid as well."

" Notes: 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. However, in 1986, he made two movies which both managed to be, at least critically, successful.
