Mr. Premier,


Neither you nor I speak English, but there are some things that can be said only in English.

A Perfect Getaway (2009)

Two pairs of lovers on a Hawaiian vacation discover that psychopaths are stalking and murdering tourists on the islands.

Imaginative thriller, made tongue-in-cheek, and with a barely convincing twist.

Maltin ***: "Well-made, unpretentious thriller delivers the goods with plenty of laughs, scares, and surprises. Mostly shot in Puerto Rico rather than Hawaii; wherever, the scenery is gourgeous, almost a character itself."

Under Fire (1983)

Three journalists in a romantic triangle are involved in political intrigue during the last days of the corrupt Somoza regime in Nicaragua before it falls to a popular revolution in 1979.

Exciting political thriller adequately fictionalizing a historic moment, but exemplifying its relevance, complete with realistic setting and stellar performances.

Halliwell *: "A thinking man's action piece, but no help to anybody in finding the true facts."

Maltin ***1/2: "First-rate political thriller...One of those rare films that manages to combine real-life politics and realistic romance with a nononsense story. Trio of stars are superb; so is Jerry Goldsmith's music. Only problem: It goes on too long."
