    GARDENS OF STONE (Francis Ford Coppola, 1987)

    Francis Ford Coppola’s impressive return to the subject of the Vietnam War is a poignant and contemplative companion piece to his epic masterwork Apocalypse Now.

    Set in 1968, the film reunites Coppola with Godfather star James Caan, who plays a disillusioned army sergeant stationed at Fort Meyers’ Arlington Cemetery and views the war in Vietnam as unwinnable, despairing at the dead arriving daily for burial from the front lines.

    This powerful drama from one of American cinema’s most audacious filmmakers boasts a towering performance by Caan, and a superb supporting cast, including Anjelica Huston, James Earl Jones, Mary Stuart Masterson and DB Sweeney.

    BREAKOUT (Tom Gries, 1975)

    Charles Bronson achieved superstar status in the 1970s with box-office successes such as The Mechanic, Mr. Majestyk, and Death Wish; and 1975’s Breakout was one of Bronson’s biggest hits.

    Inspired by real events, this tense adventure thriller casts Bronson as a tough mercenary pilot hired to fly into Mexico on a rescue mission – only to discover the real plan is to break a wealthy convict from a notorious prison.

    Co-starring his real-life wife Jill Ireland, along with Randy Quaid, John Huston and the ever-exceptional Robert Duvall, Breakout is a thrilling action-ride, all set to a terrific Jerry Goldsmith score.

    R.P.M. (Stanley Kramer, 1970)

    The films of director Stanley Kramer (Ship of Fools, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?) reflected social and political concerns of their time and tackled controversial subjects head on. The little-seen 1970 feature R.P.M., set amidst the turmoil of late-60s anti-war student protests, is no exception.

    As activists seize control of a California college, a free-thinking, anti-establishment college professor (Anthony Quinn) finds himself in a precarious position when he’s invested as University President and must decide between restoring order or sanctioning a descent into anarchy.

    Very excited about Gardens of Stone. It is a very overlooked and underrated film with outstanding acting all around.

    Breakout is excellent Bronson and I have never seem RPM.

    Interesting, I came across RPM awhile back doing some research on student protest films. Might have to check this one out.

    I'm interested in RPM because I've never seen it and it co-stars Ann-Margret who holds a fascination for me that I'm unable to explain, even to myself. Frankly, I'm surprised by the admiration for Breakout which I found very disappointing.
