Charlie Wilson’s War – $8.49 Widescreen Edition
“I didn’t stand at the door. Don’t be an idiot. I bugged the Scotch bottle. ”
“ It’s got a little transmitter on it, I’ve got a little thing in my ear, get past it.”
Charlie Wilson has died. Here’s NPR’s Morning Edition on his life:
Tom Hanks does an amazing job portraying the man who seemed to born from fiction into the non-fictional world. Phillip Seymore Hoffman more than deserved his Oscar Nomination for playing the filled to the brim with piss and vinegar yet barely bottled up CIA agent Gust Avrakotos. And Julia Roberts executes one of the greatest single word one-liners in Cinema History.
It’s charming, it’s engaging, it’s a different kind of experience. Probably just like how Charlie Wilson was.
