24 SPAIN IN OUR HEARTS AMERICANS IN THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR 1936-39 by Adam Hochschild Interesting examination on a personal level of US comrades who fought for the Abraham Lincoln Battalion against the facist forces. Read a book of his some time back about the Great War. Impressed with it so far.
Corrupt cops, politically astute animals & greed combine with sexual perversion high class whores and a climbing body count fuel a great example of American Noir of the highest order. Stellar cast of Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, Kevin Spacey Danny DeVito and the (then) luscious Kim Basinger. Just under twenty years old and it hasn't aged at all. Great film.
