| The issue just squeezed
Racism is once again the main issue of the plot in this film. It goes over a racist organization similar to KKK (may be it is the same KKK but without masks) having branches everywhere in US even inside FBI, and attempting to kill black people and any other foreigners including Jewish one. There are scenes difficult to digest, as the one of hunting behind a wounded black man. How a group of men can hunt other man like a fox? Until here the plot is to accuse those involved in this type of activities. Was the agent Cathie Weaver (Debra Winger) really in love with Gary Simmons (Tom Berenger)? Doubtful that a woman who is looking for proves of criminality and hated all what he did against black people may still be in love with such a man. One may love the physical appearance of the person but normally you reject everything when you discover that his principles and behavior are far from those accepted universally in the society where one lives. In any case, Costa-Gavras, good director of materials with political plots, tried to combine those opposite feelings just to provide some color to its film.
