Genre: Historical Drama
James Woods rules.
This film was so intense thematically, but Woods (and surprisingly, James Belushi) bring such a perfect mix of lighthearted paranoia and cynicism to it. That's not to say the film is to be taken lightly - there's one scene (the rape and murder of some nuns) that has forever been lodged in my mind as one of the most uncomfortable of film scenes to get over. That unpleasantness aside, it's a joy to watch Woods chew his way through this stuff.
Hey, the guy kills vampires fer chrissakes!
Yup... great freakin' movie.
And yes, those nuns getting killed is still burned in on my cerebral cortex...
