The Year Of Living Dangerously Review


Very Good
Five bucks if you can remember where and when the heralded Year of Living Dangerously is set. No, not Vietnam or Cambodia. It's actually 1965 Indonesia, when a boring assignment turns "dangerous" for Aussie journalist Guy Hamilton (Mel Gibson) when the country's revolution unexpectedly begins. Soon he's involved with a diplomat (Sigourney Weaver) when not running amok with photographer pal Billy Kwan, a half-Chinese dwarf man -- memorably played by non-Chinese, non-dwarf, non-male Linda Hunt, who deservedly won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar. The rest of the film hasn't aged nearly as well as Hunt's fun performance, though.
