Type: New Blu-Ray


Director Oliver Stone’s Salvador is an unflinching depiction of the Salvadoran Civil War as seen through the camera lens of Richard Boyle, a down-on-his-luck photojournalist played by James Woods (Once Upon a Time in America) in a searing performance. What begins as Boyle’s attempt to rehabilitate a career slump soon transitions into a compassionate and soul-searching endeavor that will bring to light the atrocities of war. Cast alongside Woods in supporting roles are Jim Belushi (Thief), John Savage (The Deer Hunter) and Michael Murphy (Manhattan).
