The dangers of guns is the subject of two new movies. "Lord of War," directed by the New Zealander Andrew Niccol, opens Friday. "Dear Wendy," directed
What is so special about the Lord and Wendy? Let me tell you, both are two new films that have the same subject, the dangers of guns. Unlike many nowadays films, "Lord of War" and "Dear Wendy" do not emphasize on controlling guns, rather they'll show moviegoers how guns control people.
"Lord of War," which is directed by the New Zealander Andrew Niccol and opens Friday, was shot in the Czech Republic, South Africa and other locations. It stars Nicolas Cage as an international dealer in illegal arms and Ethan Hawke as the Interpol agent chasing him. Meanwhile, "Dear Wendy," directed by the Dane Thomas Vinterberg, opens Sept. 23, follows a group of twentysomethings become fascinated with antique handguns, with a predictably bloody result.
