Movies about the Media: Salvador

DESCRIBED as “genuinely radical cinema”, Salvador – says the blurb, here, on – “recounts the conflict between the peasant revolution and the US-backed death squads in El Salvador in the early 1980s as seen through the eyes of American journalist, Richard Boyle”, played brilliantly by James Woods.

Directed by Oliver Stone, the film also stars James Belushi.

As well as a war movie, it’s also a powerful love story, plus a dramatic tale about a journalist who – says Wikipedia, here – has “a reputation that’s left him practically unemployable”.
