Criterion is going to release Costa-Gavras' MISSING later this year. My dad hated anything by Costa-Gavras because of his left-wing bent, but MISSING is a very moving story about two completely opposite types--Sissy Spacek and Jack Lemmon--coming together over a family tragedy.

There is alot going on in the film about life, and near the end a U.S. official speaks a devastating line about the reality of sticking your nose into dangerous places. I can live with a film that includes the whole drama of life instead of a narrow, ridiculous vision of it.

Three Days of The Condor, which I saw not too long ago, also has a seemingly leftist, anti-government bent that is tempered by the cold words of assasin Max von Sydow and a truthful bombshell by Cliff Robertson's CIA creep.

These two films are miles above the narrow-minded visions we're getting of late.

Years ago, 1969 to be exact, I worked with a guy who went to see Costa-Gavras’ propaganda piece “Z”. He told me that the film taught him a lot about what was going on, which taught me how Leftist’s propaganda infects the mind.
