Charlie Wilson's War

Charlie Wilson's War

The true story of Texas congressman Charlie Wilson's covert dealings in Afghanistan, where his efforts to assist rebels in their war with the Soviets had some unforeseen and long-reaching effects.

In the early 1980s, Charlie Wilson is a womanizing US congressional representative from Texas who seemed to be in the minor leagues, except for the fact that he is a member of two major foreign policy and covert-ops committees. However, prodded by his major conservative supporter, Houston Socialite Joanne Herring, Wilson learns about the plight the people are suffering in the brutal Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. With the help of the maverick CIA agent, Gustav "Gust" Avrakotos, Wilson dedicates his canny political efforts to supply the Afghan mujahideen with the weapons and support to defeat the Soviet Union. However, Charlie Wilson eventually learns that while military victory can be had, there are other consequences and prices to that fight that are ignored to everyone's sorrow. .

Reini U (es) wrote: Even if the book is excellent, and italians usually make excellent such movies, biting critics of the corrupt upperclass with a striking visual concept, this is one is an exception.First, the concept of a story told from three different angles drags along, as the visual merge points are too obvious, and the main characters too uninspiring. Even the camera, which is normally the best in those new italian movies is not really at home. The static shots and the shots of the scenery is excellent, but the dramatic resolution lacks effort, and reminds on TV drama. This is not expected with such a cast and such a production. Luca Bigazzi cannot shot every such italian movie, unfortunately. But than with a total surprise the third act changes to the girl, and suddenly it all comes together. She is the first interesting character, her storyline makes much more sense, the camera is obviously in love with her, and it helps to finish with the strongest third act. Even if act 1 and 2 are forgettable, it still makes a good impression overall.It won all the Italian Donatellos, even if "Studio illegale" and "Viva la libert" where much better italian movies this year. All three are very similar, "Studio illegale" the closest to the new Italian style created by Paolo Sorrentini.

Dylan D (br) wrote: Footnote is easily one of the year's best films, foreign or otherwise. It's cinema perfection, drama refined, and a pleasure to behold. The film tells a simple yet very well-drawn story and captivates audiences with remarkably deep and nuanced characters, brilliant performances, and astoundingly nuanced direction. It's a total package of honest drama, light comedy, and fascinating character studies. The entirety of Footnote enjoys an uncanny completeness that should satisfy audiences in search of character-driven cinema.

Plus, I seriously felt I like contracted 5 different STD's by listening to the testimonials of crusty fogies who spent a great deal of their younger years swimming around nude in jacuzzi petri dishes.

Raphal R (es) wrote: Awkward movie experience that makes me wonder how such movies make their way into festivals. It's long, boring and unoriginal.

Ruhan R (nl) wrote: I think people get a bit hung up on acting and star-power when thinking about this movie. I don't doubt that both Vaugn and Favreau are bad performers, but this script was pretty weak and I can't say Favreau hadn't embraced his directorial talent to it's full potential at that point. That's not an attack on him, few directors absolutely nail it with their first piece. Unfortunately, his writing was even worse than his directing. All the sets and costumes were great, it looked all looked okay. But the scenes were drenched in cliche, with some extremely plain dialogue. It was satisfactory, but not spectacular. The cast was not a problem, Favreau at least got that bit right. With a stronger leader and writing team this film could have been alot better.

Brian S (us) wrote: Of all the great horror movies that came out in 2013 (Oculus, The Conjuring, VHS 2, Dark Skies...), this is the essential one of the year, it's one of the best movies I've ever seen ! Jeremy Saulnier did a great job on his later film Green Room (2015), bu this one is even better, the special effects and acting are all really good, and the cinematography is very raw and realistic. This is another one of these movies that prove entirely that you don't need a big budget to make a great, disturbing horror movie. Recommended !!
