The Dogs of War, the 1980 adaptation of Frederick Forsyth's novel about a mercenary-led coup in a small African dictatorship, stars the one and only Christopher Walken as the existentially-minded head of a group of for-profit soldiers. John Irvin (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) directs, with cinematography by the legendary Jack Cardiff (Stairway to Heaven, Black Narcissus, The Red Shoes). Sensationally shot on location, with Belize standing in for the fictional African country of Zangaro, the film is a mix of straightforward action and moral/political conundrums worthy of Graham Greene. Includes both: THE INTERNATIONAL CUT (119 minutes) THE U.S. THEATRICAL CUT (104 minutes) Limited edition 3,000 units made.
