Hunting Party, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Interesting though uneven black comedy based on actual events, about a washed-up broadcast journalist (Richard Gere), his former cameraman (Terrence Howard) and the nerdy reporter-son (Jesse Eisenberg) of a network executive who, five years after the Bosnian war, attempt not just to interview but to capture a notorious war criminal who has thus far eluded CIA and U.N. search efforts in and around Sarajevo. Writer-director Richard Shepard's mix of drama and laughs works sometimes, but not enough of the time, and despite individual pluses and an implicitly strong indictment of governmental inaction in capturing war criminals it fails overall to convince. Much gratuitous rough language and profanity; crass expressions; rear and upper female nudity; some violence including torture; a fox hunt; sexual references; brief nongraphic scene of sexuality; and premarital situations. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
