Charlie Wilson’s War: films reviewed in 50 words-ish

A Hollywood a-team is assembled to create a suspiciously sympathetic, but highly entertaining (and still informing), biopic of the architect of the America’s proxy war against the USSR in Afghanistan; where the folly of the ‘my enemy’s enemy is my friend’ strategy to defeat communism has never been greater exposed.
A CIA pleasing 8 out of 10.
Director: Mike Nichols…….Writer: Aaron Sorkin……Starring: Tom Hanks…… Julia Roberts…… Philip Seymour Hoffman
