"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Million Dollar Movie

This scene never fails to crack me up. Ham on rye, extra mustard.

Love that flick.

The entire scene when Gust first meets with Charlie is awesome.

Charlie Wilson: You mean to tell me that the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan is to have the Afghans keep walking into machine gun fire 'til the Russians run out of bullets?
Gust Avrakotos: That's Harold Holt's strategy, it's not U.S. strategy.
Charlie Wilson: What is U.S. strategy?
Gust Avrakotos: Well, strictly speaking, we don't have one. But we're working hard on that.
Charlie Wilson: Who's 'we'?
Gust Avrakotos: Me and three other guys.

Great flick. Fascinating story, too. Especially considering that we've been messing with that country for about 30 years now.
