Just in time for the holidays, AMIGO DVD’s are now available for purchase directly from the John Sayles Blog.
John’s 2011 film stars legendary Filipino actor Joel Torre as Rafael Dacanay, a village mayor caught in the murderous cross-fire of the Philippine-American War in 1900. When U.S. troops garrison his village, Rafael comes under pressure to collaborate from the blood-and-guts Colonel Hardacre (Chris Cooper) as he tries not to betray his people. The film also stars Garret Dillahunt, Dane DeHaan, DJ Qualls and Yul Vásquez.
A.O. Scott of the New York Times called AMIGO a “well-carpentered narrative, fast-moving and emphatic, stepping nimbly from gravity to good humor.”
The DVD’s can be purchased for $18.99 plus shipping (sales tax for CT, NY and NJ residents) via check or PayPal. Special features include John’s commentary and interview clips. To order the DVD, please email us at: office [at] anarchistsconvention [dot] com.
