Charlie Wilson’s War
Dir. Mike Nichols, 2007, 102 mins. 35mm. With Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, Philip Seymour Hoffman. In this ever-timely based-on-truth story of secret government dealings in Soviet-era Afghanistan, Hoffman earned an Academy Award nomination for his thrilling performance as brilliant maverick CIA agent Gust Avrakotos. As played by Hoffman, Gust is a sheer force of nature and intelligence, a son of blue-collar immigrant parents and at odds with his Ivy League colleagues.
