Lord of War (2-Disc Special Edition) [2005]

Amazon | IMDB

Description: Based on actual events this black comedy/drama stars Nicholas Cage as international arms smuggler Uri Orlov. The story follows Uri from his humble beginnings as a Soviet immigrant in 1970s Brooklyn and peaks with his involvement in selling off the stockpiled arsenal of post-Cold War Ukraine to--among other top clients--the sadistic African dictator Andr Baptiste Sr. (Eamonn Walker). Jared Leto costars as Uri s little brother Vitaly whose conscience and a burgeoning cocaine problem get in the way of business. Ethan Hawke is good as a sanctimonious Interpol agent with a vendetta against Uri but the film's biggest dose of onscreen gravitas comes from Walker whose Baptiste seethes with a heavy serpent-like malevolence. Written and directed by Andrew Niccol the film makes fine use of the brisk stream-of-consciousness narration style that Martin Scorcese brought to the true crime genre with GOODFELLAS (1992) and a near constant flow of action and classic rock songs that ensure a speedy riveting ride through three decades of global carnage. Cage who coproduced lets his patented oddball magnetism slowly change polarity until viewers realize they ve been led into a moral quagmire by falling for his self-delusory spiels about supply and demand making this one of the bravest and most jet-black comedies of its decade.
