Everybody-- listen up! I have a major suspicion that the one film to be completely looked over for the month of September is Nicolas Cage's Lord of War. I don't know if it is the fact that this film touches on a taboo political subject, if the film is under-marketed or if the trailer just didn't impress, but I have been getting multiple reports claiming that Lord of War is the shit [in the best possible sense]. Check out this latest review and movie stills to see what I mean.

Lord of War Stills

The good people over at AICN have recently posted their first review for the upcoming film Lord of War starring Nicolas Cage, Jared Leto, Bridget Moynahan, Ethan Hawke and Ian Holm. They claim that this film is everything anybody could hope it to be and, judging by what I've seen so far, I couldn't hope for any better.

Lord of War is a wild ride, a healthy mix of comedy, drama, sex and disturbing images that doesn’t play around – it goes right for the jugular and never apologizes. Harsh, gritty and ballsy, the film gains its power and significance from the almost completely detached narration of Nicholas Cage (Yuri) who seems more concerned with explaining the ins and outs of the Gun Running trade than he ever is with the ramifications of his product’s ownership. Yuri’s a scumbag, but a likable scumbag.

Lord of War Nicolas Cage and Jared Leto

Aside from the aforementioned problem of the seemingly tacked on opening and closing credit sequences, I have zero complaints about the structure, performances and writing of this film – although others may.

The biggest issue, also brought up in this review, is the fact that Lord of War only shows one side of international arms dealing; therefore making it a little biased. However, if you can enjoy the film for what it is, then you may just be praising this Lord on September 16th.
