As a matter of fact…


“Who did this to the village?”
“Some men came.”
“Which men?”
“They were men with guns.”

“A doctor’s journey is enlarged  into an allegory about all countries where men with guns control the daily lives of the people. Some of the men are with the government, some are guerrillas, some are thieves, some are armed to protect themselves, and to the ordinary people it hardly matters: The man with the gun does what he wants, and his reasons are irrelevant–unknown perhaps even to himself.”  Roger Ebert on John Sayles film (1998)
