When United States reporter Don Stevens (Christopher Walken) is sent to cover the war in the Lebanon, he unexpectedly receives the chance of an interview with PLO leader Yassin. Stevens soon realizes that he has been set up when he is beaten by his supposed hosts, but in the process he discovers a plot to massacre hundreds of innocent civilians, and sets out to get the biggest scoop of his career.
I bought this DVD only because always watchable Chris Walken is in it and he is my favorite actor in the world. He plays US journalist in war-torn Beirut, who simpatises with Palestinian fight for freedom. Not very inspiring.

This Persian-Gulf turmoil story with John Hurt as an alcoholic reporter is saved solely my another terrific performance by the lovely Imogen Stubbs -- released in 1988, during her "Summer Story" period. Enjoy.
