22 October 1999 | AEIOU-2
Great video rental! A substantive political thriller w/compelling characters.
If you dig substantive thrillers that have realistic, interesting characters this is for you. This is an under-seen flick full of emotion and tension. Alan Arkin is terrific as the hostage.The script is intricate, subtle and gripping. Fine direction by Barreto.
