Year Of The Gun


(out of 5)

plays an American journalist living in Italy during the 1970s, reporting on the terrorism being caused by the Red Brigade. His involvement gets heated up when the Brigade’s plans to kidnap political leader Aldo Moro ends up being exactly like the plot of a novel he is intending to write. Is it pure coincidence, or is McCarthy privy to insider information?   is terrific as the Roman woman with whom our hero falls in love, and  equally compelling as a photographer friend who is also caught up in a mafia-strung net. Though it isn’t in any way spectacular, this John Frankenheimer film has its moments.
