4.0 out of 5 stars post traumatic stress disorder August 19, 2008
Format:DVD
This movie is a surreal criticism of the tortures that are--according to Hollywood--taking place in Guantanamo. The main character, a supposed terrorist suspect washed out of Guantanamo during a storm, is rescued by a beautiful night club dancer who invites him to live on with her platonically. The whole thing is a bit much for Ali, our middle-eastern Muslim now in sensuous Cuba. He is both appalled and attracted by the girl's life style. He, of course, doesn't drink and is jerked back and forth by flashbacks of his Guantanamo tortures and his sexual dreams about his saviouress, Maria.

Ali is also full of repressed desire and guilt, also brought forth by his brutal interrogation. Finally, the girl, who herself can stand it no longer, takes Ali to bed and tries to get him out of the country...but...she's hit by a car.

Ali, meanwhile, living in a world increasingly surreal, sees himself, alternately, as both the tortured and the torturer. Reality comes back quickly now and he recognizes himself as an Army interrogator involved in the suicide of a terror suspect. Guilt-ridden he cuts his wrists to be sent home to his wife....who just happens to be the beautiful Maria.

Ron Braithwaite author of novels--"Skull Rack" and "Hummingbird God"--on the Spanish Conquest of Mexico

2.0 out of 5 stars Guantana-meh June 11, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'd seen Rupert Evans in "Sons and Lovers" and thought he was brilliant. Here, I was bored by a cliche and contrived story, which as a twist and keeps you guessing, but is let down by the pace. It has a good looking cast and uses that for lengthy and pointless voyeuristic dancing scenes but not enough chemistry to provide substance.

Maybe I just didn't get it. But I don't reckon it's worth the watch.

2.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs down to Guantanamero April 28, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The spoken words of the characters don't match the movement of their mouths. The timing is way off making it difficult to follow the story line. Also there are torture scenes that are very difficult to watch. I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone.
