Witness in the War Zone Reviews
Taking us to the chaos that was Beirut in the 80's the film is held together by Christopher Walken in one of his more subdued roles. Showing the manipulation of the media by various factions for their own ends and the tragic results of of a society that has devoted itself to the gun. Defeinitly one to watch if your interested in the Middle East.
Side Note: The First Lebanon War/Lebenese Civil War saw Christian, Druze, Sunni Muslim and Shi'a Muslim militias fighting one another (the army disolved into the militias) as well as the PLO and other Palestinian terror grouos who had taken refugee in southern Lebanon after being expelled from Jordan and Syria (the Palestinians being the spark that set of the powder keg), seeing Egypt, Iraq, Iran and Saudi Arabia back various players behind the scenes and the involment of American, French, Italian (all under UN authority), Israeli and Syrian forces.
