Movie Review by Movie Addict
January 4th, 2014

Favorite Movie Quote: "What are the death squads, but the brain child of the CIA?"

Salvador, based on the true experiences of photojournalist Rick Boyle, is Oliver Stone at his best. The film calls into question how American audiences can ever know who to trust in a media covered war.

The film hinges on James Woods's excellent performance. He is a wannabe Hunter S. Thompson who wants to get credit for his Fear and Loathing as the last man out of Cambodia exploits he never got credit for.

It;s an intelligent, thought-provoking, and exciting film.

The film garnered Oscar nominations for Woods, Stone and Boyle.

We cannot miss mentioning James Belushi, as the role he had was made for him.
