Boorman and his cast capture the perfect subtle mesh of brutal political amorality, human greed and nastiness, the darkest humor tortured from injustice, and sweet hopeless truth that exists on irrational love. With outstanding cinematography and great, great music. Everything fits perfectly. Too mature for Hollywood and Pierce Brosnan fans. It is a film ignored, due its delicacy of tone within a framework of evil that men and women do.
