A story that could have made for a brisk jeremiad on 60 Minutes is stretched to 122 minutes of heroes fuming and villains purring their oleaginous apologies. Spacek and Lemmon, an appealing sweet-and-sour combo, sink in the swamp of good intentions.

Lemmon and Spacek are the film's highlight... It's a winning formula, and it's too bad that there isn't more of it.

Lemmon is superior as a man facing up to issues he never wanted to confront personally.

Spacek and Lemmon are fine as the missing man's wife and father, but what makes the film so overwhelming in places is its unending night-time imagery of a society coming apart at the seams.

A gutsy, surprising piece of work, a bold political tract that doubles proficiently as an interpersonal drama.

Costa-Gavras's emotionally riveting and thought-provoking 1982 film still has the power to shake viewers out of their indifference to Latin America.

Time has not only been kind to the film, but has, -- unfortunately -- made it relevant all over again.
