SHORT TAKES

"The Hunting Party"


Director: Richard Shepard

News photo

Language: English

Inspired by an article war correspondent Scott Anderson wrote for Esquire magazine, "The Hunting Party" follows three American journalists who track down wanted Serbian war criminal Boghdanovic (known as "The Fox"). Richard Gere plays a worn-out war journalist who reunites with an old buddy (Terrence Howard) in postwar Bosnia and convinces him to join the risky adventure. A would-be satirical piece with some thrills, black humor and sentiment along the way — and an all-too-contrived ending that feels artificial.
