Shock and Awe

The dark Buffalo Soldiers may be one of the year's best

Phoenix plays a lovable rogue with black market ventures.

Without spoiling any details, a quick word about the ending -- like Fight Club, it feels almost like a cheat at first, and is a significant departure from the source material. On reflection, though, and after a second viewing, it makes a better fit for the film than O'Connor's ambiguous cliff-hanger, and though on the face of it this is a "happy" outcome, one could make a case that on a deeper level it's even more cynical than the book. If that kind of thing doesn't float your boat, this isn't the movie to see, but fans of the likes of Robert Altman's original M*A*S*H should surely be able to groove to this worthy successor.
