Denzil Washington or somebody -- more of recent terrorist spin, flip,
whodoneit. It's action is totally oriented into a mindgame. Then the
obvious - The English Patient.
What's that other one, can't think of it...a gambler running with a
mob-type debt. . .too vague to recall. More in line perhaps with
these, another everybody knows - Mel Gibson's remake of the Lee Marvin
thingy, where Christopherson uses mallets on him (if not fingers,
equally well intended).
Actual footing (digital misnomers) compiled from internet scenes
smuggled out of Iraq of various cuts from Hussein's camps. Got a good
review from Bush, anyway.
Not exactly sure about Careless, a relative degree of entertainment,
but I'm nevertheless sure there's cutting fingers off, and then
there's fingers effectively being cut off. An analogy to facial
reconstructive surgery in specialized documentaries relating variously
to advancements on studies provided by courtesy of gang warfare in
L.A. or military medical training films. Not saying everyone would be
entertained, although it helps to enjoy what's being done if that's
the job. Guess it could be a potential viewed for residual
alternatives, outtakes on cases, say, were one's ass capped in some
hypothetical, gun-crazy society.
