Guest Co-Host: Matt Zoller Seitz, Jamey Duvall
Oliver Stone's Salvador stars James Woods as fast-talking journalist Richard Boyle and James Belushi as his friend, Doctor Rock. It’s kind of a "Fear and Loathing in Central America" with fewer drugs and more shooting of innocent bystanders. Despite being nominated for two academy awards, the film was not a box office success. Also it was overshadowed by another little film from Oliver Stone released the same year, Platoon.
Joining Mike this week is Movie Geeks United's Jamey Duvall and the author of The Oliver Stone Experience, Matt Zoller Seitz.
