    Just so you know that your posting was not in vain, I TiVo'd this film and watched it this afternoon. Yet another compelling cultural and historical exploration by John Sayles. I'm always amazed by his ability to present completely different locales and characters while remaining sincere and avoiding overt cliches. And it was impressive to learn that he taught himself spanish in order to write the screenplay.

    My favorite line of the film gave some whimsical foresight to his following film, Limbo.

    Brad, I'm glad you liked it. Hopefully, Men With Guns will find its way to DVD soon. Fingers crossed...
