Movie Info

Tumultuous Beirut provides the setting for this political drama that centers on a world-weary, lazy American reporter who has been reluctantly assigned to cover the latest war between the PLO and the Christian Phalangists. He could care less about the conflict and sends in stories stolen from other hard-working journalists until he begins getting more involved and interested after he humiliates himself by interviewing a bogus PLO leader.

Audience Reviews for Witness in the War Zone


But despite the wealth of raw material here, the emotionally involved and politically motivated movie makers botched their opportunity to make a "Salvador" for Lebanon and the network news.
